The 'adduser' command fails to add the new user information to /etc/passwd . I recently migrated a machine to 5.3-BETA3, and after two users were added; my normal non root user, and the isc-dhcpd user; no new users are able to be added to the machine. I've confirmed this by running 'vipw', and the last user is 'dhcpd'. 
Unsure. Possibly related to isc-dhcpd.  I do not have the resource to fully explore this problem.
