Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 325671
Add user screen offers to force a weak password but fails anyway

Description of problem:
Well, the summary is not really descriptive, here it goes:
Boot Fedora for the first time after installing, you will be prompted to create
a new user at the end of the firstboot assistant, when you enter your password,
you will be warned if it's too weak.
You can choose to _force_ to use a weak password and continue, however if your
password is less than N (6, I think) chars long you will receive a second
warning now in the form of an error.
This is an inconsistency, if you allow me to force the use of a weak password,
why hit me again with another check?
The process should _first_ check for length, then for weakness. That way
passwords less than N chars are not allowed ever, and just _then_ you can force
a weak password
Boot for the first time, create a new user with a weak password that is also
shorter than the minimum char length
