Bug - we exclude comparing Users - compare errors out comparing users

We are comparing 2 versions of our DB. We explicitly uncheck comparing users - we receive the following error:

A duplicate definition was found for the user 'xxxx'. Ensure that case sensitivity options are set correctly and all object creation scripts are valid. If the problem persists, please contact Redgate support.

So here we are...

    That error is occurring during the registration phase before the filter is effective.

    You should search the scripts folder for any duplicate CREATE statements for that user.

    Sometimes we find that users use the DB folder to store ad-hoc migration scripts, etc. and this can create this issue. No user created files should be stored on the DB folder.
