I wouldn't mind an answer to this problem too. Up til now i've been able to delete all unwanted users but today i got 1 and no matter how many times/combinations i enter the username, it always comes up "Sorry, but that user does not exist."

I had this same problem recently with three "users" that "didn't exist". Finally was able to delete them from the database in mySQL. That's the only way that I know of.
