Thanks for the suggestions.

I do have root access and I had already tried sudo passwd .... and I get 
the response "passwd: unknown user (user2)".  That is why I had also 
tried "System->Administration->Users and Groups" to add (user2).  The 
response to that was "Home directory already exists".  I have tried to 
change the name of that directory without success.

So it seems that I'm still stumped!
