Just one user (out of ~15).

Nothing much different at all (except obvious, user name, id, home etc.)

I have not tried that yet, I was a little worried about breaking something.

I found this "problem" when listing users & grep'ing for Drew, seeing
he was not there and trying to make the account - and getting an error
("Unable to add user! (does it already exist?)"). I'll probably try
the delete and re-create shortly.
