           Summary: KUser should not allow deletion of the root account
           Product: Ubuntu

          Severity: minor

         QAContact: kubuntu-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

Quoting from a recent thread on  
"1. Went to Kuser and deleted root. Kuser didn't mind accepting my request  
and happily deleted root (a bug, IMHO). It asked whether to delete also the  
home dir (/root) and mailbox (/var/mail/root).  
2. In another pop-up dialog it asked whether to delete the user's private  
group (root). I let it delete also the root group.  
3. System busted. Nothing sudo related works. "
