can't delete users without a blog (8 posts)

    after upgrading from 1.5.1 to 2.6 I can't delete users without blog... meaning if someone signs up, I detect its spam, delete his blog, then try and delete this user without a blog, I can't, it says, ok, but it won't delete the user, if I asign this user as a subscriber to another blog, I can then delete him.

    Is that normal behaviour?

    Nope, it's not.

    Site Admin -> Users. Just deleted a user w/o blog. WPMU showed a button 'Delete user and transfer posts', after I clicked on it - user was deleted.

    What's the exact error message you see?

    well, the issue is that if the user isn't associated to any blog, there are no posts to transfer so that button is kind of broken, I haven't got any users left to delete, but if I remember right, that button that was supposed to say 'Delete user and transfer posts' is just empty, its just showing, ok, and if I click that nothing happens, i.e. I get back to the users page but the user is still there.

    I tried my best to check if those users-without-a-blog have any posts or not. From what I could see, they didn't but still they were deleted properly.

    BTW, in what version do you have this problem? I experimented on 2.6

    I am on 2.6 but I will try and duplicate this behaviour at home, currently at work. Will post back here, or do you recommend I update first to 2.6.1?
