[PC-BSD Testing] post-install configuration errors in 20120605

*Section 'create a user' seems to have a logic error-*

The Username field can automatically be filled based upon the content of
the Name field. If 'john smith' is entered the result is 'jsmith' or if
'john jacob jingleheimer schmidt' is used, the Username becomes 'jschmidt'
and in these cases the intent succeeds. The trouble appears when there is
only one character or string entered in the Name field. Where 'john' is the
Name, the Username will be 'jjohn' which is a simple doubling of the first
letter, rather than taking the name verbatim as the content of this second
field. In addition to this, there seems to be no check for allowable
characters when the Username is auto-filled.

*Back button & abort issue-*

If the back button is ever used, the 'next' button becomes inactive. I
discovered this during an install within VirtualBox, so it was easy enough
to start over, but an install is still a lengthy process to fail during the
post configuration.  It is also possible to kill-off the entire process
which may sometimes be useful but in both situations the run-once flag has
already been set so that booting a second time does not cause this
configuration* to reappear.

Thank you!
