Open Directory Utility, Authenticate with admin user and under "Edit" enable root, and set password for it. In Directory editor find your initial user account, copy, and then change a digit in its GeneratedUID. Find your migrated user account, and replace its GeneratedUID with the initial account's.

Step 1: Ensure you have administrator access
Just don't do anything harsh or stay in Root long. Root is the ultimate Superuser and changes can't be undone! So once the account is deleted, get out of root!!! Don't bash me for even bringin' it up, but it's probably a permissions problem. But I don't mean to go to Disk Utility and 'fix permissions'.
Rather, you should go to the Terminal and become the owner of said test-account's home folder. That way, Sys Prefs should be able to remove the stuff. So: Don't type the " in the commands Go to the Terminal and type "sudo -s" and hit enter. It asks you for your password and eventually lets you be 'root' on the shell. Go to Sys Prefs and try again. Oh and: I would NOT just delete the files as root, because the system will still think the user's there, which could possibly lead to other problems.
Or you'd have to get into NetInfo in order to then remove the user from the system. I would urge you to try the stuff I've said in above message instead. Easier, cleaner for Mac OS X. Not a bad idea to keep a test account.
