Why don't you just take a look at the path i showed you, and find out what i

It is not easy find out what do you mean. Of course I opened user
configuration, but I don't see anything strange there.

Just edit a user, and try to change this user to root, or try to change root
to user. Exactly, that is not possible.

Well, right, this is not possible. Why it should be? It doesn't make sense.

So are the other dropdown boxes.
Why use boxes, if there is only one choice?

Again: which other boxes do you mean?
In the first tab of user configuration, you can change the user name, full name
and password. There's no dropdown box.
In details tab, you can change user I, home directory, default group. There is
some choice selection for default group, so do you mean this one?

There are no 'error' pop-ups.
There are pop-ups that want you to fill in some field, before you can leave
tab, fi. which default login shell one wants to use. why can /bin/bash not be
default there? (If someone wants another, it can allways be changed.) and
to make that choice there?

/bin/bash is the default login shell.
But your report reminds me some other (real) bug: does it mean you don't have
the shell value filled in? And that popup is telling you that you should fill
in something (such popup I would call 'error popup)?

What did you actually install? Do you have alpha2 or FACTORY version of

The missing documentation is at the point you are when you are: You have to
make a choice, but do not know what to choose, because it is not clear.
