My problem is the all my users are in that form of firstname.lastname
and I can't do anything about this.
Is there any workaround solution? Like manual mapping user X to Y so
sassy.natan will translate into sassy_natan?
The only idea at the moment I have is maybe to use gridway or
CycleServer as the submitter tool......
P.S can u point me to the RFEs? (gogggggle it and found nothing)
