Debian has nogroup as group for nobody. Sorry that I overlooked it in "1b7cf9474".

Check for "nogroup"?
Or allow to overwrite the group name with env. variable?
BTW I wonder why we need more users than just nobody/nobody or nobody/nogroup.
I'd be for having env. variable TST_USER and TST_GROUP, with helper, which would check for
them if they're not defined (similar we use in tst_net.sh), so user wouldn't have to care
BTW: code in IDcheck.sh expect difference in Debian, but that's useless (just to report
if ! fe "nobody" "$passwd" || ! (fe "nogroup" "$group" || fe "nobody" "$group")
