Nope, users is gid 100.

I checked three other machines all with the same version of debian and
up to the minute with patches. They all show:

address@hidden:~$ ll -d /usr/local/bin/
drwxrwsr-x 2 root staff 4096 Feb 13  2018 /usr/local/bin//

where groups staff is gid 50. hawk has several files and directories
assigned to gid 500. But the others have none. So I conclude that
something farkled hawk. But that *shouldn't* affect gpsd.

I'll pursue this problem off this list.

the word to its mere embellishments, such as arts and sciences; but
the true distinction between it and barbarism is, that the one
presents a state of society under the protection of just and
well-administered law, and the other is left to the chance government
of brute force."
