Description of problem:
If you try to change the username of "root" the program will crash. It locks up
and prints some errors to the terminal (if you ran it from there).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "redhat-config-users" in a term
2. Unfilter the system users
3. Go to properties of "root"
4. Change the root username to any other name.
Actual Results: Locks up, it does change the name of root but many other things
start to fail at that point.
Expected Results: Not sure honestly, either it should work cleanly or not allow
it in the first place.
I've disabled the ability to change root's username. Should be fixed in
