After deleting a user/group, creating a new
user/group will often be assigned the previous id by
Webmin. I think Webmin should keep track of
previously used ids or have a nextid counter that
increments for every new user created to prevent
re-use of ids.

    I'm classifying this as a feature request, as re-using UIDs
    is perfectly legitimate, and a good idea to prevent them
    from being eventually all used up. If you really are worried
    about old files being owned by new users, instead of
    deleting users you should just lock their accounts so that
    they can no longer be used..
