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):

How reproducible:

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
