That's the GID of the mock group on the host.  It's not my primary GID,
but I guess that doesn't matter.  It would explain why I'm the only
person unlucky enough to run into this.

That might help this specific case, I guess, but perhaps there's a more
general problem.  If mock absolutely requires that it be able to create
a group in the chroot with the same GID as the mock group on the host,
then perhaps we should reserve a static GID for mock.

Exim doesn't actually create a GID.  It just creates UID 93 and does not
call useradd with -g, so an 'exim' group is created with a random GID.
As far as I know it's always done this.
