i found out that tools like 'id' and 'whoami' display the [UG]ID
4294967295 for the Hurd nouser.
This is because the IDs are handled as unsigned ints; GNU Libc says:
- Data Type: uid_t
This is an integer data type used to represent user IDs. In the
GNU library, this is an alias for `unsigned int'.
But, get*id() are returning -1 (signed) (-> 4294967295 (unsigned)) for
Should that be fixed? If yes, how? Should we use a signed uid_t or
would that violate a standard?
