Description Ivan Gyurdiev 2006-01-05 09:41:40 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051216 Fedora/1.5-3 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
It should be able to recover from inconsistencies between the passwd, group, and shadow files. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add user
2. Remove user from /etc/passwd
3. Remove user from /etc/group
4. Run system-config-users

Actual Results:  System-config-users does not work, and I would hardly call the error message informative - it should at least print the offending user.

Expected Results:  It should skip the faulty user, possibly warn about it, and prompt the user to delete it (?).

Additional info:
Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2007-11-07 12:13:57 EST
Current versions warn about users/groups being faulty.
