Description Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-09-10 09:03:20 EDT
In the user screen, you can do fun stuff like adding users bin, daemon, 
shutdown and halt - and watch the installed system doing odd things.
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-09-12 14:44:20 EDT
It does filter for root, but you're right about other system users.  It's not a
huge problem, but it would be easy to fix.
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-09-13 17:01:29 EDT
Fixed in cvs.
