It's fairly common that a user will request a rename usually based on a privacy
concern (they used their real name, etc.).

The rename will be performed but because of (I assume) cookies and SUL and
such, the account gets recreated automatically - this is usually undesirable.

Rename should perhaps force a userlogout - if possible - to avoid this
happening. Or perhaps someone has a more elegant solution.
