Yes.  User Experience-wise it was different than expected (and therefore
bad).  I am used to seeing my i-name appear there, as it has every other
time I have authenticated.  I can't speak to whether or not this is how the
libraries generally handle XRI's but since I have seen it work *correctly*
before, I have to assume it is an implementation issue.  If I am wrong, it's
because Marketing/User Experience people like me shouldn't make such
assumptions out loud. ;)
