    I upgraded to Lion on the day of release. Yesterday I decided to do a clean install. I used Migration Assistant to bring all my user, settings and apps over from Snow Leopard. The problem I am having is that I can not delete my Lion user. I have set the SL user that I migrated over as the Admin but I can not delete the Lion user. It will disappear from the User List but will come back after I reopen System Preferences.
