Public bug report changed:

I confirm this bug.
I've got the same error message on a up-to-date dapper with kde 3.5.2 and kde-guidance 0.6.3-0ubuntu1.

After some tests, it seems to be related to an error in the groups config.
In /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/unixauthdb.py at line 524, the self._context.lookupGID method fails to obtains the GUID of the main user. self._gid is 501, and None is returned.

Now in a shell :
$groups $LOGNAME
id: cannot find name for group ID 501

If it could helps someone ...
