From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3) Gecko/20050104 Red Hat/1.4.3-3.0.7

Description of problem:
I added a user via Preferences->Add Users->Add user and received no error,
but after adding the user it is not listed in the list of users.
If I try to add it again, it says I cannot add the user - it already exists.
The "nobody" user is listed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Preferences->Add Users->Add user
2. enter user name and password
3. click ok

Actual Results:  User not listed, so I cannot edit or delete the new user

Expected Results:  user should be listed in the Samba Users window

Does the user show up if you close the application and reopen it?

Comment 2 David Biesack 2005-06-03 15:27:13 UTC
No, I have tried closing the app and restarting; the users are not listed.
The do show up in /etc/samba/smbusers

Additionally, if I try to add a mount and under Access only try to allow a
specific user to have read/write, only "nobody" is listed, not the users
I have added.
