Description Justin Churchey 2003-07-26 21:46:01 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703

Description of problem:
Added a user and created a custom group for it.  I edited /etc/passwd and
/etc/shadow to add an underscore to the username.  I had to delete the user b/c
Linux kept saying that the password would have to be reset in 0 days (which may
be another bug).  I added the user again (no underscores).  A dialog prompted me
asking whether or not I wanted to add the user to the already existing custom
group that it made before or add them to the "users" group.  I chose yes, and
the program hangs giving the following output to terminal: 

  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/userWindow.py", line 290, in
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/userWindow.py", line 92, in userWinReset
TypeError: argument 2 must be list, not str

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run redhat-config-users
2.Add user where a custom group had already been made under that name
3.Choose to add to existing group when the dialog box appears

Actual Results:  The program hangs

Expected Results:  The program should add the user to the existing group with no
