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):
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 (?).
Current versions warn about users/groups being faulty.
