I'm thinking you may need to force a refresh of user information list.

There's something about that here, and other resources I can mention if not helpful;

Look in to the cmdlet SPUser Relink. That should help you.

There is a group called ALL People which is hidden in SP2010
Please follow this way to reach there:
Go to your site http://sitename/_layouts/people.aspx?MembershipGroupId=0
Find your user and delete the user from this group and then readd the user on the site manually with same permissions as you cannot add the user in All people group. Eg: UserA is a part of Contributor and Reader. Then add the user in both the group after deleting from All People.
Your issue will get fixed .
Note : Check the user permissions before deleting from All people group

try re-typing the command in full rather than copy and paste.

STSADM can be sensitive to character set when pasted from a website.
