Login via Displayname Bug

One of my users on the Beta is Displayname 'Reggie' with a cap R.

If you try to use the new login (which properly now shows the three options) and I type 'Reggie' I get the mismatch/back, if -- on the other hand -- I type 'reggie', the login processes correctly.  Cool

Just to be sure - I checked my true userID and it is 'registration_test'

thanks
  

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Okay - how that pathway goes:
1) LogInOut checks the name as typed in against the vars files - if there's a match it checks the password and you're in.

2) if the name doesn't match a vars file OR one of the other membership pre-registration files, it checks the name against the memberinfo list - and on the beta it checks lower case to lower case. (But we already know from a support request here that the lowercase to lowercase check has an occasional weirdness.)

I'm testing a code revision on yabbforumsoftware.com that's case sensitive and I'm still tracing that logic path to see if there's a spot that should be a lower case to lower case comparison related to the screen name but isn't.)

A tentative - needs to be tested - fix is in SVN build 1442/1443 (LogInOut.pm and System.pm)
This version should be strictly case sensitive for the logins. (And can be fixed to be case insensitive later.)

There was also a problem that crept on on the refactor with the 'name exists' check on registration and that may be where the Reggie/reggie problem started.
