If you want to do this, ensure it is enabled by a gsetting.

First this use case does not apply to Sugar on Ubuntu since each user 
has a separate account. Also, activities installed by the user goes into 
the user's Activities directory. Finally, Sugar cannot and should not 
touch the user's account in Ubuntu.

For the XO, the user account is olpc regardless of who is actually using 
the computer. Activities added are available to all users and may well 
be needed by all to complete school assignments. The Journal is a record 
of the user's activities - including documents prepared by the user. The 
user may need access to those documents to continue the work. Certainly 
the user should not be forced to start over. Since the user is OLPC, I 
have no idea what a 'create new user' prompt would be. Naturally, the 
new user can change the nick, as always.
