Description of problem:
I searched the bugs for something like this and did not find it - apologies if
this is a dupe.
When asked to enter additional user information, I tabbed through the fields
(didn't need to add another) and accidentally ended up on the full name
field. There I pressed the space bar, then quickly pressed tab to the 'OK'
button and pressed the space bar again to move forward. The installer
promptly issued a traceback error -- and in my haste I didn't try to capture
it. However I think this would be easy to reproduce - simply enter no user
information aside from a single (or more?) space in the full name field, then
continue as normal.
This is a stock 8.0 install, straight from CD / no kickstart, etc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter no information in all fields except 'full name' in 'addiitonal' users
2. Enter a space (single) in the 'full name' field
3. Press OK
Actual Results: Traceback fault
Expected Results: Should either ignore it, or prompt me with an error message
Not exactly a big deal, but an uncaught exception nonetheless.
This functionality will be moved to the firstboot environment in the next
release. It will not be an anaconda issue.
