I ran into a small bug last week where VCL reports that the admin user
account has been added to a provisioned resource even though the user add
command had actually failed.  This is based on the following /etc/passwd

account admin to vcl-vm1

VCL thinks that the user has been added because of the last line in the
file (mysql user account) which matches the regexp in the _is_user_added
subroutine in utils.pm.  Later, when VCL attempts to change the password
of the non-existent admin user, it fails.  The regexp could be modified
to look for the string "$user" at the beginning of each line instead.
