Why?  What's the point of changing the name of the identically-same
group memberships?  Why not leave them as they were - a change in
fullname would not logically imply a change in a group membership, would

Sure - but I guess my question is whether anyone else has tested this
and come up with different behavior (from that I described)?  Has anyone
changed their fullname and then verified that the normal group
relationships remained intact without a logout/login?  (Remember that I
do have some customized stuff, so I'm never sure how they will interact
with changes in JSPWiki.  No point in entering a trouble ticket if I'm
the only one experiencing it.)

subject of this message to be more general.
