Description Patrick Barnes 2006-01-03 23:41:23 EST
Description of problem:

Attempting to create a new account with an alternate username when the account
already exists may result in a traceback.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an account
2. Log out
3. Attempt to create another account with a different username, but keep all
other information the same

This was uncovered by Scott Glaser when he forgot about his existing account and
attempted to create a new one.

This should result in a friendly error message that tells the user what is
happening.

His traceback from http://rafb.net/paste/results/lnSAhS74.html :
INSERT INTO person (username, human_name, email, gpg_keyid, ssh_key, password,
comments, postal_address, affiliation, telephone, facsimile, approval_status)
VALUES ('sglaser', 'Scott Glaser', 'sonar_guy@c-ccom.com', '599000BD', 'ssh-dss
