Description of problem:
I added a user via Preferences->Add Users->Add user and received no error,
but after adding the user it is not listed in the list of users.
If I try to add it again, it says I cannot add the user - it already exists.
The "nobody" user is listed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Preferences->Add Users->Add user
2. enter user name and password
3. click ok
Actual Results: User not listed, so I cannot edit or delete the new user
Expected Results: user should be listed in the Samba Users window
Does the user show up if you close the application and reopen it?
No, I have tried closing the app and restarting; the users are not listed.
The do show up in /etc/samba/smbusers
Additionally, if I try to add a mount and under Access only try to allow a
specific user to have read/write, only "nobody" is listed, not the users
I have added.
