User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070206 Firefox/3.0.1
Build Identifier: 

In about:config, "extensions.weave.username" should match the users name after the setup wizard has completed.  In the Weave forums, several folks have noted that the config entry still says "nobody" after the wizard finishes.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run setup wizard
2. check "extensions.weave.username"
3. on some systems (see forums for examples) it remains as 'nobody' even after wizard completes.
Actual Results:  
either contains the value of 'nobody' or the users real username.

Expected Results:  
It should have the users name as entered in the wizard

I have not seen any cases of the username being set to 'nobody' after the wizard completes.  I've seen reports where the wizard does *not* complete, and in those cases it can be left as 'nobody'.

Please reopen if you have a specific example / STR.
