http://drupal.org/node/370868 I have the exact same problem as that guy. My site only has 3 users/authors.. it would be fucking stupid to add user/ or something in there just to get around this. I will never have paths clash with usernames, so the restriction doesn't make sense. is there any way around this? I was in the process of converting username.domain.com to domain.com/username for the three of us to simplify some things, but this would be a deal-breaker.
