I was following a tutorial on using Profiles with MySQL and Asp.Net. I added the section in Global.asax for the Profile_OnMigrateAnonymous event handler.

The call to ProfileManager.DeleteProfile(args.AnonymousID) fails with a System.InvalidCastException: specified cast is not valid. This should have deleted the profile for this anonymous user. None of the data in the my_aspnet_* tables changed where the row in My_aspnet_profiles for this userid should have been removed.

The top-most traces are:
MySql.Web.Profile.MySQLProfileProvider.DeleteProfiles(String[] usernames) +350
System.Web.Profile.ProfileManager.DeleteProfile(String username) +84

I'll attach a screen-shot of the stack trace as reported in the Browser.

Windows 7, Visual Studio 2010, .Net 4.0, MySQL 5.5.27, Connector.Net 6.5.4, IE 8

How to repeat:
Simple asp.net tutorial app on profiles with a login page and MySQL as provider.
Run from within Visual Studio with Ctrl-F5.
Access profile page as anonymous user and save profile data. Exit browser.
Run from within Visual Studio with Ctrl-F5.
Login as authorized user. As soon as login button is pressed, the invalid cast exception is thrown.

Suggested fix:
Find and fix the invalid cast.
