I don't know the solution, but I suspect the answer you're
going to get is to try upgrading to something more recent,
like 3.0.23b, since your 3.0.13 is fairly old.

Also, I have a similar issue, but instead of the previous user,
what I see is the Unix group name instead of the username.
So maybe related, but maybe not.
