user account woes

I have a phantom user stuck in my system that I can neither use nor delete. I
have been playing with "Virtual Users" in "pure-ftpd" and it seems to have
messed things around.
Substituting `bob` for the user name, here is some of my command line:
# grep bob /etc/passwd /etc/pwd.db
# pw add user lindalepark
pw: user 'bob' already exists
# grep lindale /etc/passwd /etc/pwd.db
# pw del user bob
pw: no such user `bob'
If I delete the entry from /etc/passwd, the cycle starts again.
