Description Magnus Malmsten 2004-01-09 06:44:41 EST
Description of problem:

Deleting a user with home directory /dev/null and "delete users home
directory checkbox" activated causes program to delete system
/dev/null special file.

Expected results:

/dev/null not deleted.
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2004-02-03 18:53:21 EST
I added a check to prevent the deletion of /dev/null.  Should be fixed
in system-config-users-1.2.9-1.
