Bug Description

Binary package hint: system-config-samba

When you enter a windows user name for a Samba user, you must enter the username in quotation marks if it contains spaces. This is not documented within the window itself, and is a ridiculous requirement. There should be no reason to ever require a user to escape content in a text box.
