[Bug 69200] userconfig crashes while loading group id's

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kde-guidance

I have a system where I created a custom "users" group, with numeric ID
= 100. All my users belong to that group:

root at grisell# grep 100 /etc/group
users:x:100:

# grep 100 /etc/passwd
leo:x:1000:100:Leo Milano:/home/leo:/bin/bash
lmilano:x:1002:100:Leo:/home/lmilano:/bin/bash
(and so on)

I don't know if this is the reason, but userconfig seems to choke while
loading group id on start up:

root at grisell# userconfig
kbuildsycoca running...
no user removed
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/userconfig", line 1711, in ?
    userconfigapp = UserConfigApp()
  File "/usr/bin/userconfig", line 275, in __init__
    self.__updateGroupList()
  File "/usr/bin/userconfig", line 515, in __updateGroupList
    self.__selectGroup(self.selectedgroupid)
  File "/usr/bin/userconfig", line 521, in __selectGroup
    lvi = self.groupidsToListItems[groupid]
KeyError

I am not sure how I can be of any more help, maybe by posting my
complete /etc/group ? Would that be useful ?

This is Kubuntu 6.10, kde-guidance 0.7.0-0ubuntu4

Many thanks !
Leo
