Default shadow-4.1.4.2-2 - was: Fixing groupadd

Signoff shadow. Fixes always creating system groups with ID 99 (FS#16092).

Now UID/GIDs are as follows:

0-499 -> reserved for Arch packaging
500-999 -> system users/groups
1000-60000 -> general users/groups.

For some reason "groupadd --system" starts adding groups at 999 and
working down, but that appears an upstream decision.


Signoff both,
Allan
