Indeed the wording could be improved, but I don't think I'll make another upstream release of the gnome-system-tools now that they are deprecated. And since it's been that way in Ubuntu since Lucid, I'm not sure it's worth patching it for Natty (translations...). But I've opened a bug[1 ] against gnome-control-center, which replaces users-admin in GNOME 3 and uses the same string.

About the comma, I don't understand the problem: it's not listed as an allowed character, so it's expected that you can't use it.

I'm closing the Ubuntu translations task as that's not a translation bug at all. On the contrary, for example in French, the wording is better than in English and doesn't suffer from this ambiguity.
