Order of operations is gettin' ya.
All your ITL interpolates before the profile checks ever start. That
means [userdb new_account] fires up before you ever check the value of
mv_username with the email check.
You will likely need to split this into two operations. Use
mv_form_profile to do your profile checks first, and then put the
account creation code inside an mv_click. With &fatal in a
mv_form_profile, for a failed profile, the mv_click code will never execute.
You could, in fact, cut that one profile right between &fatal and the
[if ...] line, putting the top part in the mv_form_profile, and the
bottom part in the mv_click, and that would be logically the proper
