      Needs two Moodle 2.x sites networked via MNet, one (A) acting as identity provider, one (B) as service provider.

      1. Login as admin at the identity provider site (A)
      2. At the Peers settings page for the second site, make sure the field "confirmed" is not selected among "Fields to export" (you may need to uncheck "Use the default settings instead")
      3. Still at (A), log in as a user who has not roamed to the second site yet (eg create a fresh new user)
      4. Roam to the site (B)
      5. Log out and log in as admin at (B)
      6. Filter all users with "confirmed" set to "no"
      7. TEST: make sure the new remote user is not listed here (hence is confirmed)

    Description

      It may happen that the profile field "confirmed" is set to 0 for incoming roaming users. It leads to removal of the records. See http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=171512 for the full report. Due to this data-loss risk, triaged as Critical
