Description Milan Kerslager 2006-08-28 07:19:45 EDT
Even there is a possibility to create loginname with a dot (ie: milan.kerslager)
in RHEL3 and RHEL4 with standard shadow-utils (see bug #159034 for fixing this
up in RHEL3), there is no possibility to create such user in system-config-users.

Please apply this one-line patch. Thank you. Possibly apply to RHEL3 too.
