Sort of. One of my friends developed a fix where the variable is reset to correct username.

Could you or your friend post the fix here so that that developers could look at it, please? :)

When you say that you "sort of" fixed the problem, which parts of the problem remain?

well, we found out than on the profil page, the user object had certain values empty, namely the username. the userid were still there:
[user] => JUser Object
[isRoot:protected] => 1
[id] => 300
[name] => His Name
[username] => 
[email] => [email protected]
He found out the the user is correct logged in, but somewhere in the code, the username were overwritten.

So he made a little code to reset the variable:

includes/application.php in the method "authorise"
$table = $user->getTable();
$original_properties = $table->getProperties();
$user->set('username', $original_properties['username']);

see whole changed function here: pastebin.com/aksvycS7

My friends hypothesis is that some bad plugin changes the username. The latest i had were frontent google analytics stats plugin, but i havent checked if that is the one causing it.

edit: It werent that plugin, i removed it and error were still there when fix commented.
