Bug#302921: kuser: corrupts username information

Package: kuser
Version: 4:3.4.0-0pre1
Severity: critical
Tags: experimental
Justification: breaks unrelated software

1. Do a fresh net install of Debian Sarge RC3
2. Upgrade to Unstable
3. Add pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org to sources.list
4. Apt-get install x-window-system kde kdm cupsys sane
5. Log into KDE using the username created while installing Debian
6. Open Kuser, select the username, then click the edit button
7. Select the groups tab, then select the lpadmin, saned, and scanner
8. Select OK, then close Kuser (there is no save button)
9. Watch the problems start :{ - Konsole no longer works correctly, KDM
does not list the username, reopening Kuser shows the username is on the
same level number as root (0)
10. I have not discovered a fix. Attempting to recover the user account
with usermod
