Bug description:
  1. Enter control panel
  2. "Add account"
  3. Use an invalid charcter, such as an upper case letter.
  4. Get a confusing error message:

  Failed to add account 
  running '/usr/sbin/adduser' failed: Child process exited with code 1'

  
  This is an easy fix, and could keep a user from getting really confused.
  For a confused user see
