not sure exactly the cause, but every time I add a user it segfaults. 
It works, but it segfaults.  I have an open bug ticket on sourceforge,
and I'm currently working on getting a test bed set up (the setup it
happens on is a client's cluster, I can't really go giving their
information out all over the place ;)

well, and I'm not a programmer, so I'm not entirely sure, but I think
that's the point of stripping the binaries, so you end up only having
the functions necessary.  I would think that dynamically loading the
module at run time would bring in the entire module, thereby having a
far higher runtime footprint.  Plus, I would think that loading the
module dynamically would cause a performance hit, especially since these
are all one shot processes. Yes, the OS would/should cache it, but it's
still there....

Then again, I could be completely wrong.  Flames welcome.
