Yeah, I looked in /etc/passwd, and wwwrun doesn't exist there.
It turns out that the wwwrun user ID is coming from Novell's NDS (this is a Novell OES server based on SLES 9). It was apparently auto-created when I created the server.
What's weird is that I can make wwwrun the owner of files using chown, but I can't add wwwrun to groups using usermod (usermod tells me that the user doesn't exist).

How do you know that? Have you checked /etc/passwd?
