Create completely hidden accounts in 10.5 and 10.4.11
Authored by: da2357 on Mar 14, '08 10:28:56AM

I agree. I tried this with a 10.4.11 iMac and while it created the user fine and hides it from the login window, it does leave problems... it doesn't provide a home directory setup, trying to get into System Preferences > Accounts results in a blank panel, and running a few commands/apps result in slow performance since there isn't a /Users/$USER/Library folder to write to. I was initially very excited, but this needs a user home in order to be a complete solution.
