Bonjour Problems

We planned on pre-configuring all logins with auto launch so the user
should never be touching the username so bob should be bob.  However the
problem exists of not working properly when moving then into groups.  If
anyone has a patch or know of what that corrects this please email.

Thanks for all your help thus far.

Which version of Pidgin are you using?

As far as I know, this should work correctly (with the caveat that
Richard was referring to where you're not guaranteed that "Bob" is
always the same person).
