Description Matthias Urlichs 1999-10-12 07:57:16 UTC
If I create a user with a password that contains spaces, the
installer will crash with a Python error message when it
creates the actual /etc/passwd file.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2000-02-11 20:45:59 UTC
This issue is resolved in the latest installer available in beta.
