The real problem is that I "misnamed" the UnixUserInfo fields.

As per the UnixUserInfo source:


The UnixUserInfo.RealName field returns the passwd::pw_gecos field, while
UnixUserInfo.UserName returns the passwd::pw_name field.

Based on IRC conversations, and the ubuntuforums.org entry, the real problem is
that you're reading the "pw_gecos" field -- which can be a comma-separated list
-- but expecting it to be the pw_name field.

The proper thing to do is to use UnixUserInfo.UserName if that's what you
actually want.
