sorry if this has been reported before.

ive run into some trouble with kubuntu, this being that it wont let me add a new user using the user management option under system settings.
(system settings - user management)

if i try an add a new user using terminal (eg - sudo useradd -r new
user) the new user doesnt show up in the user management section of
system settings, and the new user is not showing in the log in window

im using kubuntu (hardy, not using kde 4 on the system with this issue)
it was fine a week ago, but all of a sudden this has become an issue, i have no idea why.

i have managed to use the user management section to add a new user, but
it doesnt actually create a new user (even though it says it has)
