Normally must work it, just test it out with 3.0.0 , can you give us some information, witch username you have entered, did you install MOD or adjust some core files etc?
Perhaps you can fill out the Support Request Template

This user you are trying to change would not happen to be an admin?

This happened to me when I tried to change username of a founder.

you need to give another id the founder status and entering with that id first change your status as founder and then change name and then again change to founder, this worked with me though....

kinda strange no the user is just a normal register user not an admin/mod/or founder, or group founder... just normal.. they're in multiple group but nothing special than new register member.

Go to ACP->Board configuration->User registration settings and check your settings. The user in question may be trying to enter a username with two few letters/etc. :)

I didn't say that, you did. I just suggested that rat check his settings as that could have caused his issue.

phpBB2 will probably suit you better as it is less complicated. :P
