"A quick perusal of a web search turned up information about this error but not anything that applied to my situation.

I opened an xterm and ran grep -r “/home/oldusername” .opera which revealed my suspicions were correct. The files that grep showed with hard coded paths are global.dat, opera6.adr, opera6.ini and pluginpath.ini."
