The bug here is that we should have escaped this value before we put it
into the DN.

What is happening here is that we simply ignore the -500 user from your
import, and then re-add the administrator.  The issue is that we add it
in english, so if you have a second administrator (a bad idea in my
view) it will collide.  Just remove that from the import source before
you start.
