    Obviously the old user was not deleted. Do you want to delete him/her?

    This is not possible. You either didn't do a clean install (=>did not format the drive) or else you chose a new drive for you ubuntu system and you still login to your old... Once the disk is formatted how is ubuntu supposed to recover a user from it?

    You may be right though but if so...terrible bug...
