It's not possible to add a user to group operator using the gui
I wanted to create a backup user that could dump the filesystem. I used the gui to create group operator which created an additional operator group with gid 2002.
I think the way to fix this is to check for a system (/etc/group) gid before assigning a completely new one.

Need to think on this a bit. It seems OK from a technical point of view, but security-wise, I'm not so certain. It may be too easy for an admin to unintentionally grant someone elevated shell privileges by using a special existing group name without realizing what they are doing.
