Just my way of saying it changes the name correctly, not a bug. Sorry.

Yes, that makes sense. It also makes sense for someone to call the user of 
a computer "audio" if that is the account doing audio stuff.

I agree this is the root issue. I think this is why some applications 
always create both a user and a group if they are not running as root. It 
locks that username out of use. Perhaps we should create an audio user 
with a X password field.
