Deleting user accounts created directly in NetInfo
Authored by: Anonymous on Jun 12, '03 07:56:26PM

I think that the System Preferences Accounts panel only deletes the user if it sucessfully manages to archive the user's home directory. If this fails for any reason it doesn't delete the user. This prevents data loss.

However in this case the operation may fail because the directory isn't found. Hence the problem.

I don't actually know if this theory is correct, but it seems to fit the facts.
