It shouldn't matter at all.. such a group would only have one user in
it, so it'd behave as you'd expect. The only issue would be if you
created a group with a large number of users in it, then created a user
with the same name - which would be a configuration error IMO (since
it's not unusual to treat users and groups as the same namespace..
indeed win32 even does it at the system level).
