  Well, I did search the archives before posting, and did so again
 right now without much luck.  The closest I get is a patch from 1998
 which deals with a similar problem (usernames -starting- with digits).
 Do you remember the subject of the thread you're referring to?

  The version I'm using is 2.2.6.
