Username differs from BP handle when registration is done in wordpress backend
I have set up a new BuddyPress site with WP 3.0 and BP 188.8.131.52
If i create a user in wordpress backend with username a.sjogren (a dot in the username) it is accepted. The new user logs in with a.sjogren. But the handle in BuddyPress is not @a.sjogren, instead it is @a-sjogren! I think this is misleading for the user.
If i allow users to register with the buddypress registrationform, no dots are allowed in the username and there is no problem.
Is this i known issue? Workaround?
If you see at my BP handle it is @t.sjogren! Is there a setting in the system that allows dots in the handle?
