Traceback (most recent call last):

AttributeError: userWindow instance has no attribute 'gidCheckButton'

Yep, just tried this on my fresh install of f7 with same results, doing a
useradd from a terminal worked fine (should have done that first anyway :-).
I wanted to specify group ID and existing home directory to create the same
user I had on fc6 pointing to same home dir on 2nd disk drive.
