Description of Problem:

I took a look at this tool and my first impression was that it would scare
the dickens out of new users. My second impression was that a new user
would try to delete all these users because they don't know who they are.
Could a feature be added to hide/unhide (hide by default) all the system
users (adm,bin,deamon,etc...) except for root?

Yes, I'd like to do that.  It's too late for the current release timeframe,
though.  Deferring.
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-02-26 16:42:42 EST
Sorry this took so long to implement.  It was waiting on the port to GTK2, which
is now completed.  

I have implemented this feature now and checked the code into cvs.  A new build
should appear in rawhide soon.  Thanks for your report.
