 This appears to have been related to bad user data - The user in questions
 name wasn't showing up in many places due to broken utf8 characters. That
 includes on their WordPress.org profile, support forum profile, and
 getting eaten by `wp_json_encode()` which has some UTF8 protections built

 I've re-saved their profile, which has caused their display name to show
 up correctly everywhere (such as on profiles.w.org) and also when being
 added to a plugin.

 Unfortunately I'm not sure how best to locate other accounts that suffer
 it, as character sets are hard..

 I'm going to close this one as fixed though, if other users are affected
 by this, hit save on your WordPress.org profile and see if that fixes the
 bad data.
