Description of problem:
While using user manager in KDE, I cannot create more than one account per
session of the program.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in as root in KDE
2.Start user manager
3.Create an account
4. Attempt to create a second user
Actual Results: Pressing the new user button on the toolbar does not bring up
the entry dialog. You must quit the program and restart it to add another user.
Expected Results: New user entry dialog should appear after new user button is
I just tested it in Gnome, it works fine there.
This appears to be a duplicate of Bug 62308 where KDE window manager is not
honoring WM hints. redhat-config-users works fine in KDE, except the new Add
User dialogue is appearing beneith the main window the second time you use it.
If this is in fact a duplicate, then this is a kdebase component bug.
bshotts, are you running the program from the command line? If not, try doing
that. Perhaps there is a traceback or error message that you can't see if you
run it from the menu.
Also, you should upgrade to
since I've fixed some bugs since 1.0-8. Does 1.0-10 make the problem go away?
Correction, grab redhat-config-users-1.0-11 instead.
redhat-config-users-1.0-10.noarch.rpm (11 not on the rawhide site) fails to come
up with the follwoing error messages:

As to the original error, firstname.lastname@example.org is correct, the user dialog appears
under the application window.
How long does it take for new packages to reach rawhide?
redhat-config-users-1.0-11 is not there yet. subversion 10 is indeed broken
with the same error above.
It usually appears the next day. redhat-config-users-1.0-12.noarch.rpm is there
now. Can you give that a try?
tested -12.noarch.rpm. It no longer crashes like -10.noarch.rpm, but it doesn't
fix the original problem that is most likely the KDE window manager not
acknowleding WM hints in Bug 62308.
Ok. At the very least, we tracked down some bugs in redhat-config-users...they
just weren't bugs related to this particular problem. I now agree that the
behavior here is a KDE problem. The New User window appears on top the first
time. But every time you launch the window after that, it appears under the
I'm going to dupe this against bug 62308
