Trying to batch create create multiple users using the newusers command and reading data from a text file documented here: https://www.linuxnix.com/linux-password-file-explained-detail/.

When I run the command I get an error:
Error in `newusers’: double free or corruption (!prev):

Works if there are only 2 users in that file, but any more throws an error. Seems to be a reported bug. Any work arounds or other solutions?
