Thanks for the clarifications, Pierre, they will solve my problem. But one
of the motivations of my original post was that I thought I had done what
the faq says. I suggest it gets clarified; it says: "You can rename the
user in the Windows User Manager GUI". I interpreted this to mean to go to
Control Panel->User Accounts->Rename, and did it. I think many users will
do the same. Also, as Coughlan pointed out, the real renaming may break
many things and it may be good to alert users to that.
Also, the FAQ says: "run mkpasswd", without giving the info you gave me
above which is essential.
