Upon further investigation, lenny's version of the users-admin tool
removed the ldap users from /etc/group and /etc/gshadow, and left only the
local and old users after creating a user. The first time I tested it I didn't
notice the removal, as I was expecting something more noticeable as a two
lines /etc/group.

Apparently users-admin does modifications to the local groups based on
some system configuration, thats obviuosly not document, and certainly wrong.
In my case users-admin would not take into account the ldap, and in the case
of the submitter it wont consider almost any group.
