OK, now you have my curiosity piqued.  When I click your link, I also 
see those boxes checked.  I also see that his real name and login_name 
are blank on the form.

If you enter his email in the search box on editusers and click the 
resulting link, then you get a form that does have his user name and 
real name on the form, and the boxes are not checked.

Clicking the link from the search results gives you an editusers with 
his userid in the URL instead of the email address.
