endless login error when username is capitalized

                 Key: SQ-735

(Mr Steve)

I still get failures logging in from within Etoys (current account MrSteve and new test accounts created)


Looks like a case-sensitivity problem.  Usernames are all converted to lowercase.  The website allows you to use upper/lowercase when you log in (teefal, Teefal, TEEFAL).

With my own account, I can also use upper/lowercase when logging in from Etoys.   When I login as "MrSteve" in Etoys, it gives me a never-ending 500 Servlet Exception box, requiring a force quit.

I can log in with "mrsteve" fine from Etoys.  I'm perplexed by this.  Perhaps Etoys is doing something with the text field, expanding it somehow . . . "MrSteve" -> "Mr Steve"

Either way, we need to figure this out.
