  The issue was that the previous code sometimes *didn't* send User-Name when it was required to do so.  That's wrong.

Those upgrading would have to do diffs (between .rpmnew and the original) to see what's changed, and that often does not happen. Either way, an upgrade *will* have an effect that is a departure from pre-3.0.17 behaviour.

  Any bug fix is departure from previous behaviour.

  I'll see if there's a fix.  But it will have to be done carefully.
