From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
I cannot add a user without a built-in group or home directory.
This is annoying as hell, especially since I work with MySQL a LOT 
and am trying to create a user that will never have access to any 
other packages (than MySQL) on my machine.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect to your redhat machine, REMOTELY with VNC
2. log in as the root user
3. run : redhat-config-users
4. enter some data for a NEW user:
   username, password, confirm password,
5. choose login shell:
6. UNCHECK Create Home Directory
7. UNCHCEK Create a private group for the user

Actual Results:  [root@mytoast joeb]# redhat-config-users
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/userWindow.py", line 315, in 
    self.addToUsersGroup(userEnt, userName)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/userWindow.py", line 332, in 
    cn = groupEnt.get(libuser.GROUPNAME)[0]
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get'

Expected Results:  It should have created a new user for me, but it 
freaked out and the GUI locked up for this component.
