Make sure all NIS user ids are > 1000. User ids <= 1000 are "reserved"
for "system users" on more OSes than just Debian. I'm surprised you don't
have other conflicts already.
As a temporary fix, you could "move" libuuid to another uid -- but there's
no way the system is going to be able tell you what files owned by "user
#532" are really owned by "sushmita" vs. really owned by "libuuid"; the
system considers them the same user.
