I'm talking about the account names, not the geckos. As far as I know it is not
allowed to have anything except english low case letters and numbers as an
account name. On the system I'm recovering now even

adduser -m пупкин

says "useradd: invalid user name 'пупкин'".

In my case /home had severe file system errors, it should not be mounted in
read/write without accurate manual fixing, so I had an empty (unmounted) /home

I'm not looking for help, I'm trying to raise a discussion about insane default
assumptions made by installer for a fresh fedora 10 system.
