Unhappy Can't add users in debian


every time i try to add a new user to Debian i get this message-The Application "users-admin" has quit unexpectedly.
I've just started using Debian and i'm finding this bug irritating so early on. I open the user admin but after typing in the new users name and password it crashes and displays the above message. Need help fixing this

How did you install Debian? I had similar glitches when I installed via the netinst CD.

What's user-admin? Why do you not use adduser(8)?
