Ok, I don't have the delete button enabled (default). I deleted myself on
the demo server (v2.0), and it deleted the record in the table
grouper_ext_subj. Then I registered again and it added a record to that
table. I think if you look in that table and grouper_ext_subj_attr?, you
should be able to see the dupes and delete one and you will be all set
hopefully. I see that log message, but it is outdated at the time of the
delete, not at the time of the next invite, right? Let me know if you see
anything and I will keep looking...

That doesn't seem to be it. Today I tested using a different computer
than the one I had been using. I did this:

1. Login with my admin account and send an invitation to another account.
2. Quit from the browser.
3. Follow the link in the invitation mail, which launches the browser again.
4. Authenticate with the other account.

After the authentication is successful, I get the subject not found
error for the account I just logged-in as. This had been working fine,
right up until I tried used the delete credentials options last night.
