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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter no information in all fields except 'full name' in 'addiitonal' users 
text window
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

Additional info:

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.
