Description Joshua Crunk 2002-12-12 15:11:13 UTC
Description of Problem:  Same problem as reported in Bugzilla 70783, 73719, 
76414, 78064.  Cannot change user passwords with redhat-config-users-1.0.1-5.  
When I click OK to apply the change, NOTHING happens.  However, I CAN add or 
delete users with redhat-config-users.

Problem is, the solution on the above bug #s is to use redhat-config-users-1.1-
16 or redhat-config-users-1.1-9.  I cannot find either of these on  The only version that I could find on rawhide was redhat-
config-users-1.1.1-4, which crashes on my system upon execution.

This problem seemed to arise on the Samba update to 2.2.7-1.7.3. (machine with 
bug is a Samba PDC). 

How Reproducible:  Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start redhat-config-users
2.Open the properties sheet for a user
3.Change the user's password
4.Click OK.
5.Properties sheet should close, but does NOT.

Actual Results:  Properties sheet does NOT close, and error messages are printed
in the shell window.

[root@linux73 root]# redhat-config-users
/usr/share/redhat-config-users/ DeprecationWarning: use 
/usr/share/redhat-config-users/ DeprecationWarning: use 
/usr/share/redhat-config-users/ DeprecationWarning: use 
Traceback (most recent call last):

    self.parent.ADMIN.setpassUser(self.userEnt, pw)
TypeError: function takes exactly 3 arguments (2 given)
[root@linux73 root]#

Expected Results:  Properties sheet should close, saving changes to user's
