This started I think in 2.5.206. I noticed this behavior also and it causes
problems when looking up calls stats using [username='whoever']. We now
have to use the inexact, [username like '%whoever%'].
I just started using 2.5.209 yesterday, but don't yet know if it's storing
the data in the Calls table "correctly" or not. Prior to I think 2.5.206,
only the real username portion of the login was being stored in the Calls
table--that was great.
