Just tried on my SuSE 9.0:
# useradd "hello world"
useradd: Invalid user name `hello world'.
So I assume that usernames with blanks are not a good idea - in the way
that most Linux tools don't cope with them, even if maybe the NSS
library calls do cope with them.
Doesn't Samba also use the platform useradd command to add accounts in
most setups ?
