Error deleting users (single or bulk)

I'm not sure if this is something I'm overlooking, but I was having an issue deleting users on 3.2.1. The confirmation screen for deleting users kept looping, and no deletes were actually happening.

In looking at the source on wp-admin/users.php, it appears the form ACTION is missing on both forms (for single deletes and bulk). When I set the action to "users.php", it fixed the problem for me.

Can't reproduce neither in 3.2.1 nor in 3.3-trunk.

There's actually one form for both single and bulk deletions:

Another one is for removing users from the site in Multisite:

Both have action="", which is a valid representation of same-document reference, according to the URI specification (section 4.2 at
However it's up to the browser to replace an empty URI reference with the base URI of the
current document when making a request.
