Copies all accounts in to the single-initial account instead of copying accounts to -new- accounts of the same name.

Bug Description

Binary package hint: migration-assistant

This is the actual real-world use case:

While trying to pitch Linux (Mint) to older users (50/60s) as a replacement for an aging WinXP installation migration-assistant fails to copy and create the selected accounts from the Windows XP install.

The Windows XP accounts are named: admin, dad, mom, sis ; each family member having their own account and settings.
The resulting linux accounts should be similar, but renaming account names is tolerable.

Using the Ubuntu-9.10-Daily-Live-CD (2009-10-16) and checking 'Dad', 'Mom' and 'Sis' accounts; the install completed but the desired result did not occur.

Expected result: For each checked account a new user would be created and the settings imported to make the logins match.
Actual result: All files and settings copied in to the single setup account.
