Description Ales Zelinka 2008-08-27 04:38:27 EDT
Description of problem:
system-config-samba cannot handle unknown options (both valid and nonvalid ones) and dies with traceback instead of propper error message. It leaves user with no information on what happened when ran from GUI.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo "you dont know me = yes" >> /etc/samba/smb.conf
2. system-config-samba
Actual results:
traceback on stderr

Expected results:
propper error message (both stderr and gui)

Additional info:
Having this fixed would also prevent bogus (or just poorly described) bugs to be filed against system-config-samba.
