tried to add new user via users-admin and none is added

Asked by d1bro

gnome-system-tools 2.22.1-0ubuntu3

on installation i set up a user with encrypted home with alpha5-alternate-cd.

now i'd like to add a second user, so i started users-admin from panel and add on. after i close i try to switch to the user via fast-user-switch-applet, but the newly created user is not showing up, so i restarted users-admin and there the new user is missing.

what to do?

Not sure about config in Jaunty, but maybe a restart or Terminal helps.

Can you help with this problem?
