Account information shows up properly on the new test site. The test site is running on a slightly older version of Centos (5.4 vs 5.5) and PHP (5.3.1 vs 5.3.3)

I've already started pruning. I am scanning the accounts I delete, so unless you have a really weird account name with random letters or your account is something like BuyViagra you'll be fine.

I don't think the pruning is causing the PHP error Paul found or the inability to edit users. My guess is that the required upgrade to the latest 5.x Drupal code may have brought it about.

That looks like 5.3 issues are resolved well before the 6.20 version that we'll be using.
