Please comment on the existing bug here:

It's been open for a while - I would think it'd be a very easy thing to 
fix, but I guess nobody has gotten around to taking care of it yet. This 
would help your problem - in the meantime, I've installed "KUser" which 
is a pretty well made interface for user/group management at my sites. 
The teachers seem to like it because it looks like the old Windows NT 
user admin tool (which they were used to before our switch).
