Verified on 2 Systems SuSE 8.2

Yast Verion:
yast2-users-2.7.20-15

Problem:
For some reason there are 2 root users on a system, e.g.
root
emergency

If one creates a new user with Yast 2, root will be deleted.

Solution:
?

Is uid-sorting of passwd enabled (/etc/sysconfig/suseconfig->SORT_PASSWD_BY_UID)?

Maybe switch this off.
