Hi Leo,

your commit a3002104:
system: Assert, that user and group names are unique.

breaks `guix system reconfigure` for me and other people (at least two
in IRC).

$ guix system reconfigure config.scm
guix system: error: the following groups appear more than once: lp

$ sudo grep lp /etc/group
lp:x:989:

lpadmin:x:975:

$ sudo grep lp /etc/passwd
lp:!:18467::::::

The same happend on my server with the `nginx` group.

I reverted it for the mean time, as I find it pretty grave...

~Jonathan

It would seem you have two or more services adding an lp group then. 
Or one service and a manually defined one.

Same problem here; you're probably adding an nginx group twice in some
way.  This is especially concerning, given that it's groups twice – for
some reason nothing is adding additional users or else that check would
have been triggered first.

I would have preferred, if you could instead have demoted it to a
warning.  I understand, that stuff suddenly breaking can be
frustrating, but I doubt the configurations you're using are fine.

I've re-applied the patch with errors demoted to warnings.  I hope you
and the other people, who've reported this in IRC will be able to
figure out where the duplicate groups come from.

Regards,
Leo
