Description John Sanda 2008-06-27 17:42:07 UTC
Description of problem:
The userid column in the group_users table is/should be a FK to the users table.
There is no FK key constraint however. This can lead to data anomalies in which
we have a userid in group_users and no corresponding user in the users table. We
already have this situation in QA (, and it has
resulted in NPEs in GateKeeper code. The following query will return the bad data:

select G.userid 
from group_users G
where G.userid not in (
    select U.userid
    from users U
