Hi,



Summary:

When using a Windows login name with a dot only the first letter is retained
after logging out, and logging in again will fail when only the password is
entered.



Explanation:
Windows 2000 workstation, part of an AD with several Windows servers. The
same problem seems to exist if the workstation is in a workgroup. I need to
connect to the Netware servers which are used for our student network. So I
have the Novell Client installed, currently 4.92 SP2 with post sp2 patchkit
B and the dprpcw32 update.

As of 4.91 I have this problem where only the first letter of my Windows
login name is retained after a reboot. When I try to login I get an error
stating the login name/password is incorrect. The funny thing is. With the
"Advanced" options closed I have only a login name and a password field. The
login name shown is correct. If I click on Advanced and look under the
Windows tab, only the first letter is listed there.

It does not matter if I have workstation only selected or not, the behavior
is the same. My login name is "b.bloksma" and all that is visible at the
Windows tab is "b". However...... If I login to the workstation where my
login name is "Bonno" and I log out the full name will be retained. I can
simply enter my password et voila.

So probably the dot is the problem. When selecting workstation only and
entering a login name in the field near the password I can see the entered
chars copied into the windows login name box. However..... If I use my login
name with the dot it wil only copy the first letter. If I enter the correct
name in the Windows name box is will correctly be copied in the login name
box near the password.

Is this a known bug? I haven't found any info on it. If so, when will it be
fixed? If it's not a know bug.... where can I report it?
