Package: colord
Version: 1.3.3-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

after installing the colord package (1.3.3-2), I received the following
error message:

 Setting up colord (1.3.3-2) ...
 adduser: Only one or two names allowed.
 dpkg: error processing package colord (--configure):
  installed colord package post-installation script subprocess returned error 
exit status 1
 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of gnome-control-center:
   gnome-control-center depends on colord (>= 0.1.30); however:
     Package colord is not configured yet.

The following lines of the postinst script seem to be the problem:

 adduser --system --group --home /var/lib/colord colord \
     --quiet --gecos "colord colour management daemon"

Here the username "colord" is given somewhere between the other
The manpage of colord documents, that the username should be the last

Indeed, the following call works ("colord" moved to the end of the
second line):

 adduser --system --group --home /var/lib/colord \
     --quiet --gecos "colord colour management daemon" colord
