Description of problem:

# useradd -g users -c testuser -p dsfdsfdadsf Testuser
useradd: invalid user name 'Testuser'

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

shadow-utils-4.1.4.2-1.fc12.x86_64

How reproducible:

always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. useradd -g users -c testuser -p dsfdsfdadsf Testuser
2.
3.
  
Actual results:

useradd: invalid user name 'Testuser'

Expected results:

the user be created

Additional info:

system-config-users does allow capital letters
firstboot allows users with capital letters

it am not sure what the solution is, but it's not very consistent

it appears that this is fixed in useradd in rawhide?

I'm sorry for this bug. I have marked shadow-utils-4.1.4.2-2.fc12 as stable so it should be available soon.
