Not quite sure what the problem is here. If you a user has updated
their account to put in their name then that name (rather than ugly
openid) is displayed in the list and everywhere else on the site. They
do need to go edit their profile though -- perhaps it would be good to
prompt them to do this after logging in if they haven't already).

I did this earlier in the day with someone and it worked fine :)
