Confirm for CVS version.

In Profile user can take another Display Name, check used for it not right working.

Have we determined if this is an actual bug, or just weirdness with the forum here?

Nope ... This community forum runs CVS, so not identified or fixed.
  It seems to allow the exact same name (in this case jeff) as a Display name (each username is different).

Edited:
I noticed that 2 of the jeff's (both) registered exactly at 2:01 am on Jan 1st, 2001, I then went into Admin Center and also saw there is over 30 pages of users registering on the same date and exactly the same time (can also be seen on the Members list)  So may not be a problem with other forums using the software, just a glitch here

Have we figured out what is causing this?

Agreed, and I have done it a few times believe it or not.  But there is still an issue that appears to be bugs.

I have told years ago this is time to clean-up users base here. There are a lot of dead accounts.

Looks like a lot of bugs.  All 5 of those have different usernames.  Some were registered back before we had all the name checks, but some were not.  Even more interesting is why they do not show up in the memberlist when doing a sort by display name.

Add that to you getting a wrong error about it being a reserved name, because it is not.  You should have been told it was a name already used.  But so should have 4 of those other Jeff's.

I don't see anyone just named "Jeff" by itself, although I'm sure there is one and I missed it.  The other Jeff's all have an initial or a last name like "JeffG" or "Jeff Smith". 

Jeff is -not- reserved here.  If that's the error message you receive, then it is a bug.  If there is another just plain "Jeff" then you should get an error that it's already used.  If there is no "Jeff" then it's another bug.
