 Your url for that author should be /author/A-B/ and is based on the
 user_nicename in the user table. This is how my local install is behaving.

 If you have no data in the user_nicename column then author permalinks
 won't work.

 Your user_nicename data may be filled with user_displayname data by
 mistake. This could be caused by a bad plugin or some other intervention
 outside of WordPress.

 As I read the code there is no other way for the display name to be
 injected into that URL, so I'm guessing it is bad user_nicename data
 causing the problem.
