Testing with commit a1e97024.

For me, the previous scenario does not work; on a server with just 3
users, creating a 4th then to see it, I must click "Show all".

Dieter, does Ninad's scenario work for you?

I would be happen to try this with your added random value.

I wonder why removing a user would not bring an older page from the
cache (you are talking about the browser cache, right?) while creating a
user would.

For this to work, I believe that the create button would need to be
highlighted to show that it's the action of the Enter key.

I just tried here http://jqueryui.com/demos/dialog/#modal-form and the
Enter key does not work; maybe it's not intended to work.

In your previous release I was not seeing the added column but now it's
