Description of problem:
Pushing the properties button has no effect. Consequently, it is
impossible to edit the user properties.

The error occurs when one tries to edit the properties of some user (seems to
work well for groups). The .xsession-errors file yields some output related to
this erroneaous behaviour:

I can't reproduce this. Can you try the redhat-config-users-0.9.2-4 that is in
Rawhide now and see if this still happens?
I had obtained this error message after upgrading from the previous version
installed with Red Hat Linux 7.1.93 Beta (Roswell I). After a fresh install of
Red Hat Linux 7.1.94 Beta (Roswell II), the included version (which is actually
the rawhide version for which the bug was initially reported) works properly
with respect to the reported behaviour. It seems like if the dependencies where
not set up correctly.
Ok. Glad to see that things are working now. Thanks for your report.
