make sure this was documented. Screenshot from tablet coming soon.
There's a very good chance that the people that are not having their names
shown in the chat are all ops/moderators.
Yepp, screenshot welcome. :)

user Razumihn speaking in the channel. All instances of this happening appear
to be from users whose names start with a capital letter, like bug #4905.
The user also is not an op or voiced. Some people that originally were affected
yesterday, such as Stskeeps, were not affected today for some reason. I'll be
properly testing this in a controlled environment tonight to narrow down the
This is a WONTFIX for Maemo4.
If bug 5139 for Maemo5 gets solved in the future and if the problem reporterd
here will be still an issue in Maemo5 after fixing bug 5139, please update this
report (steps, Version field) and reopen it. Thanks.
