Wow, you use the PVE.Window.Edit class created yesterday - so you can consider yourself an 'early adopter' ;-)
(I will try to keep the code stable, no need to worry)

Notes on API URLs:

The web server exposes the API at: https://your.server:8006/api2/{requested_format}/

For example, you can simply browse the API using the web browser:

first, connect to https://your.server:8006/ and login, after that you can browse the api at:


Inside the javascript code you usually want the server to return the data in JSON format, so 
the correct url is https://your.server:8006/api2/json/

ExtJS allows you to return more information about error, and automatically displays
that error information in forms (attached to the correct field). So if you work with ExtJS forms, you 
should use the following url:


(return JSON with additional error information)

Note: PVE.Utils.API2Request automatically prepend '/api2/extjs' to the url

So the correct url parameters for the UserEdit.js are:

        if (create) {
            url = '/api2/extjs/access/users';
            method = 'POST';
        } else {
            url = '/api2/extjs/access/users/' + userid;
            method = 'PUT';

I already committed that code.
