Noooo, I didn't - looking at the eprints3 folder it looks like the remove has taken a lot of the files already including the bin folder so I can't stop it from the command line.
I know I can -f remove the user outside of the apt-get remove process to force its removal but I've read that this is bad juju and can leave things in a rickety state.
