    File Explorer and Directory Opus Listers DO NOT show the Deleted User.
    When Using a sub-Browser (not sure what it's called) The Deleted User is listed with all of the sub menus!

    The other reason I suggested this is that users can add characters to their username that are not alphanumeric (e.g. user*). This confuses things somewhat when looking at the list.
