Bug#613214: use libpam-krb5 for uidNumbers greater than 10000 only (as opposed to the default > 1000)

Well, I would claim it is more a question of expectations.  You seem
to expect something not guaranteed by adduser.

As far as I can tell, it isn't in conflict, and everything is working
as documented.  The 500-1000 range is for local users, while 1000-> is
for global users.  For Skolelinux, these users are in LDAP, and
adduser should not be used without any extra arguments (or changed
configuration) to create local users.  In fact, I would recommend
against creating local users at all on machines with users in LDAP.

Happy hacking,
