Comment (by Otto42):

 His name is showing up on the profile for me right now, so doesn't appear
 to be an issue.

 However, this is likely a symptom of a deeper problem with regard to our
 database tables. That's a whole other bucket of worms. Dion knows more
 about the problem than I do, but the short of it is that all the tables
 are using latin1 instead of utf8, and we're storing utf8 data in them, and
 the hyperDB database later has various issues with converting, and so on.

 It's not an easy problem and I just tend to spot fix when I find them.
 ATM, this seems to be a fixed problem specifically on profiles.
