#3104: Inconsistent display of User name
  Reporter:  StevieG  |      Owner:  StevieG

Changes (by DJPaul):

 * cc: johnjamesjacoby (added)
 * keywords:  User Name, messging =>
 * component:  Messaging => Core
 * priority:  normal => major


 This is a bigger problem than just the "at notifications". Some notes:

 * URL is matched on user_nicename
 * Private messaging recipients is checked against user_login
 * Member profile's activity mentions page somewhere looks at user_login
 * @autolinking is done on user_login
 * A bunch of helper functions such as bp_core_get_userid() look at

 Do we switch everything over to user_nicename, or change the /members/<>/
 URL to use the user_login? Do we want to touch this in 1.3 or leave for a
 release after that?
