Description David Shea 2013-07-19 17:07:41 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #969309 +++

Description of problem:
When I create user in anaconda I can enter my real name and username. My real name is Łukasz and username entry is filled automatically. And then anaconda crashes. I can type Lukasz as real name and everything is fine.

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

How reproducible:
I tried it once.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create user in Anaconda (while installing packages)
2. type non-latin character in real name.

Actual results:
installer crashes

Expected results:
Be Łukasz.

Additional info:
I know that username generally shouldn't contain "Ł" character, but anaconda use it anyway. It crashes in the process, but even if it wouldn't, it's still bad idea to have "łukasz" username.

--- Additional comment from Łukasz Posadowski on 2013-05-31 04:13:27 EDT ---

More additional info:

When I type "Łukasz Po" anaconda says:
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xc5 in position 0: unexpected end of data - anaconda.
