User ID / User Name confusion

Sorry, another niggle... When viewing the main list of questions, you see, say, "GPO" as the author of a question. When you click through to view the question itself, you see that it was asked by "Theo Verclause" (see http://ask.sqlservercentral.com/questions/97138/google-search-trends-for-sql-server.html for example) Answers are also tagged with the user name, but comments are tagged with the user ID. Attempting to tag @Theo Verclause doesn't work, as the username "Theo" belongs to someone else (who has only logged in once, or something...); attempting to tag @GPO, on the otherhand, works just fine... Can this behaviour be made consistent and returned to showing just the User ID?

Ow yeah, that's really annoying behaviour! @Grant Fritchey got tricked by that the other day as well, see http://ask.sqlservercentral.com/questions/98570/empty-or-null-check-function-in-sql.html
