Unlike the network providers like LDAP, the local provider MUST have a valid min_id set in order to function (because creating users needs to start at the correct value).
Right now, we have a hard value of 1000 specified in confdb.h. It would be much better if we added a configure option of --with-local-min-id to define this as appropriate for the system.
An alternate approach would be to autodetect the value from /etc/login.defs, but I'm not sure we want to allow defaults to be that fluid.
