Description of problem:
Tried to create a user during firstboot with a user name consisting of only
numeric characters. Dialog warning about confusion which may ensue opened, with
only 'OK' as option. Clicking 'OK' dismisses dialog, and then system opened
error dialog with details, requesting the attached file be sent and bug report made.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install OS
2. When firstboot asks for new user create one with numeric characters only
exception throw user not created.
either user created as requested or able to go back to that step and create
another user with a valid (non-numeric only) user name.

The file request to be attached to bug report, by the system.
Should be fixes in system-config-users-1.2.51-4.el5 already. Next time, please
provide the requested version/release of the component, thanks!
Please report back if this version doesn't fix the problem (it worked for me).
