Repro: Clicking a user name link in "Users and Groups" on a opensuse 12.2 system leads to the following error message
Error - Perl execution failed
Can't locate timelocal.pl in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/libexec/webmin /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.16.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.16.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.16.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.16.0 /usr/lib/perl5/5.16.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.16.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl . /usr/libexec/webmin/ ..) at /usr/libexec/webmin/useradmin/edit_user.cgi line 6.
