If you don't get it done on the user interface, I would like to have a 
bug report about this (should not happen), including all details filled out.

If you have access to the file system of the wiki server, you could just 
look into data/user/... and even edit the stuff you see there with a 
text editor.

Also maybe delete the file user2id in the data/cache/... directory.
