that workaround won't change the username shown in the history. DO NOT delete the old username or you'll break the history display. You'll get a sql error if the username has been deleted. "Retire it' by removing it from all groups and roles that have access to any projects. I create a group named 'obsolete' and move them to that group so we know it is no longer an active user.
