VirtualCenter Crashes When User Name Entry Contains a Space (1839)
To work around this problem, remove any user names that consist only of a space, or remove the space from the user name entry in the group file. This file is typically /etc/group.
To correct this, upgrade to VirtualCenter 1.3 or later.
