In the AWI, this dialog is parted in two fields, one for Name and one for Department. As you see above, it is pre-filled with USER as name and DOMDIBACORP as department, but  NEW.1 is ignored. You can change these two values, but when you click Rename, an error is displayed:

The User can only be deleted from within the Java GUI, then in AWI everything works again.
