Problem adding a user

Hi all,

This is on a machine running David Hare's Exe Debian Wheezy respin.

When I add a user, the new user doesn't show up in either the user list in
Kuser, or on the login screen.  It does create a home directory, but it
doesn't add the user to the extra_groups from adduser.conf.  The new user
can login to TDE at the login screen, but the first-run wizard runs at every
login.  I tried adding the user with kuser and from a shell with adduser,
with the same result.

I ran out of time and had to leave, but later realized I should've checked
ownership on the new home directory.  Before I go back and try again, can
anyone offer any other suggestions?

I tried it on another machine with Exe installed from the same CD with, I
think, the same set of other stuff (multimedia etc.) installed, and
everything worked fine.
