[Mailman-Users] Removing illegal character user names

Hi all,

Through some finger incontinence on my part (trying to do list admin
waaaayyyy too late at night when I should have been in bed asleep) I have
managed to add an illegally-named user whom I now cannot unsubscribe ...

It is also possible I've discovered a bug, in which case the circumstances
were a mass subscribe exercise where (in this case) I forgot to add a space
between the username and the email address, so the input line looked like
this "User"<username at domain.com> and the list added them as this "User"
username at domain.com.

I can see the user name in the list admin console but it will not allow me
to unsubscribe or "no mail" the user.

Can anyone advise, help at all, please?

Regards, Mike
