Ok, I believe I have been able to reproduce the problem.
1) Before I created the new user, I verified by using the ldapsearch
command on the compat tree that the user I was going to create didn't exist:
ldapsearch -b "cn=compat,dc=demo1,dc=freeipa,dc=org" -h
ipa.demo1.freeipa.org -s sub "(&(objectclass=*)(uid=123456))"
Returns nothing
ldapsearch -b "cn=accounts,dc=demo1,dc=freeipa,dc=org" -h
ipa.demo1.freeipa.org -s sub "(&(objectclass=*)(uid=123456))"
Returns nothing
Note: I also tried just dumping all the user objects to a file and made
sure it wasn't there.

2) Next, I login to the webui and then create the new user.
userlogin: 123456
First Name: Test
Last Name: User
and then a password.

3) Next I verified that the account was showing up in the compat tree:
ldapsearch -b "cn=compat,dc=demo1,dc=freeipa,dc=org" -h
ipa.demo1.freeipa.org -s sub "(&(objectclass=*)(uid=123456))"
version: 1
dn: uid=123456,cn=users,cn=compat,dc=demo1,dc=freeipa,dc=org
objectClass: posixAccount
objectClass: ipaOverrideTarget
objectClass: top
gecos: Test User
cn: Test User
uidNumber: 1120000053
gidNumber: 1120000053
loginShell: /bin/sh
homeDirectory: /home/123456
ipaAnchorUUID::
OlNJRDpTLTEtNS0yMS0zNjIwNjU0ODcyLTY4NzE1NzE0Mi00MDUwMjk3OTIzL
 TEwNTM=
uid: 123456

4) I delete the same user account via the webgui (full delete).

5) I then check the compat tree again and here is the result:
ldapsearch -b "cn=compat,dc=demo1,dc=freeipa,dc=org" -h
ipa.demo1.freeipa.org -s sub "(&(objectclass=*)(uid=123456))"
version: 1
dn: uid=123456,cn=users,cn=compat,dc=demo1,dc=freeipa,dc=org
objectClass: posixAccount
objectClass: ipaOverrideTarget
objectClass: top
gecos: Test User
cn: Test User
uidNumber: 1120000053
gidNumber: 1120000053
loginShell: /bin/sh
homeDirectory: /home/123456
ipaAnchorUUID::
OlNJRDpTLTEtNS0yMS0zNjIwNjU0ODcyLTY4NzE1NzE0Mi00MDUwMjk3OTIzL
 TEwNTM=
uid: 123456

The user account is still there.

Now what is really weird is that if I recreate the user 123456 through the
webgui and perform the ldapsearch, I see two entries.  If I delete the
user, it removes one of the entries and leaves the shadow one above.  I can
tell because the accounts look identical except for the ipaAnchorUUID
attribute.

- This is a problem for our Solaris systems, as the ldap client is pointing
to the compat tree so when the accounts are still active in the ipa domain
(ie they are in the accounts tree) I am seeing 2 entries when using the
getent passwd command.  Needless to say the pam_ldap module doesn't like
the two entries.

Now, I tried to do it again with a different account (say 111111 or 500000)
and it won't reproduce the problem. This only seems to occur on the first
user I created this way in the demo site you provided.  In my instance, I
had 2 accounts that I created that had this shadow account left in the
compat tree.
