userdel hangs on accounts created with the shipped /usr/sbin/adduser.  
I'm tracing through it and it appears to be a problem with removing 
the user from the groups.  I'd like to stick with adduser since it 
creates a unique group per user, which has to be done manually if
using useradd.

Would using useradd and keeping all users in the 'users' group be
a major drawback?
