      Description

      Sometimes two guest accounts exist, and so login fails.

      This discussion has a clear summary http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=152147

      There's two things that should be fixed:

      1) Login should be more tolerant, in this instance probably. (will fix sites with the problem)
      2) The guest account creation should check better before it creates a new one. (prevents the problem in future)

            I have already changed significantly the guest account handling in 2.0dev + my enrol patch, it should not happen any more because the guest and admin account are created only in db/install.php

            I am going to review the login process, but I think it might be better to drop all duplicate guest accounts instead...
