Yes, it is filling in the shell minus the first letter.. I personally think
the order should be Email, Login@default and NEVER shell@default since not
many ISPs even offer shell accounts.

How about changing this, or providing an option to change the order.... I
have found multiple email accounts that were setup incorrectly due to this
"feature"... I don't use the shell feature and have told my employees to NOT
use caps but then they are only human and do make mistakes.
