One for the archives: If anyone finds their group name or username set to
"run" or "mkpasswd" or "mkgroup"...You need to do exactly that, run mkpasswd
or mkgroup to update /etc/passwd or /etc/group respectively. There's some
new detection code to let you know when your /etc/{group,passwd} file is

So Peter Canning, you will need to run mkpasswd. And to Christophe Thiebot,
you will need to run mkgroup.

I've CCd in case your not on the list ;-)
