It shouldn't matter at all.. such a group would only have one user in 
it, so it'd behave as you'd expect.  The only issue would be if you 
created a group with a large number of users in it, then created a user 
with the same name - which would be a configuration error IMO (since 
it's not unusual to treat users and groups as the same namespace.. 
indeed win32 even does it at the system level).
