The problem appeared to stem from a broken Gentoo ebuild for vpopmail.
Once vpopmail compiled from source and installed over the Gentoo install
location in /var/vpopmail, it became functional again.

Subject: [vchkpw] Failed to Delete User from Auth Backend
Recently after re-compiling vpopmail-5.4.17, now any time I go to delete a
user (either through command line or qmailadmin) I get the following error:
ark bin # ./vdeluser [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Failed to delete user from auth backend
Error: Illegal username
What would be causing this?
