Package: policycoreutils-python-utils
Version: 2.6-2
Severity: normal

# semanage user -a -R user_r test2
libsemanage.add_user: user system_u not in password file
# semanage user -d test2
ValueError: SELinux user test2 is not defined

I get the above when I try to add and delete a user.  The system is in
permissive mode.
