I just looked up my latest submission (bug #1704) in both
redmine and roundup. In redmine my name ("Oliver Fromme")
is listed correcty. In roundup it doesn't appear at all.

So maybe the bug is only in the web frontend of roundup.
That is, the name was recognized and stored in the DB,
but the web frontend fails to display it.
And of course there's still the problem that there are
ten users with my name on redmine. I don't know if this
is the case in roundup, too, because there doesn't seem
to be an easy way to list all users. Anyway, it would
be very nice if this problem could be fixed for the
future in redmine.
