I went back to the create user screen because of bug 734906 (ntp missing) and then I had some trouble figuring out how to go forward again. It was unclear if it would create a copy of the same user or just replace it. I suppose it's a good way to create multiple users at first boot if you want to, but if that step has already been done, it would be good to have a way to go forward without creating it again.
When you went back to the create user screen, were the text fields prefilled with the old values. or were they empty?
Yes, they all still had the same values.
