Description Bill Nottingham 2007-09-19 13:39:52 EDT
Description of problem:

Set up a user, say 'foo'.

Enter a password, say, 'bar'.

You get a dialog saying:


This password is WAY TOO SHORT and insecure. Are you sure you wish to use it?

 [ No ] [ Yes ]

If you select 'Yes', it's then denied with 'Password is too short.'

I don't really have a problem with denying it, but we shouldn't offer the
option to continue if it's going to be denied anyway.

Looks like system-config-users is checking passwords more strictly than it did
when this firstboot module was last modified.  This will be fixed in the next
build of firstboot.
