i have the same problem... although i did not change the uid or anything else. just the password fields.
the group of the new user gets added:
grep test /etc/group
test:x:1005:
testu:x:1006:
(i tried two times... thought maybe test is a reserved word the first time)
but no user in passwd and no home dir.
i did add users on the console before, maybe that complicated things?
no matter what went wrong.. its just a WTF NONO!!! to not do any error handling, im really pissed.
