Thanks.

I also noticed that a group with the same GID number as the users UID number is 
automatically
created when creating the user account, this is a problem for existing 
environments who's already
used the same ID number for a group.

I see that even after doing a user-mod, changing the GID of the account, the 
private (invisible)
group still exists.

I'm missing an option to choose if I want to create or not create a private 
group for the user.


Rgds,
Siggi
