I seem to have developed a phantom user.
If I click on my People Directory I have a person called 'Lending'
If I click the person the little box pops up with a heading of 'Name not set'. The username is Lending. When I click Full User Profile an error page displays the Exception Type is 'TransversalError and the Exception Value is (None, 'fullname')
Opening up User Management via Control Panel reveals that I do not have a user called 'Lending' I do however have a group in my Active Directory called Lending but I don't think it is related to my AD group because if I disable all functionality on the Plone Active Directory plugin, all my users except for siteadmin and the phantom 'Lending' vanish.
If I try to create a user in with a User Name of lending tells me they already exist.

Hmm... the People Directory is seeming to have confusion with displaying Groups as users, somehow. The group called Lending in your AD is showing up in the People Directory screen because of this reason.

We're investigating this, the issue is being tracked on ODN at

Hopefully a fix for this should go in soon.

I have this problem in 3.1.3. I've written a few posts/comments about it, nothing so far :(
