 > I just tried to create a new user using the same username netweb and the
 user is not created with a warning "Name already exists"

 Thanks for testing but that test isn't quite right because you seemed to
 have missed out the important dot from your tests.

 Try these steps:

 1. Create a user with a dot in the username. For example '''abc.def'''
 2. Create the same username without the dot '''abcdef'''
