Regarding usernames generated from email address with a period in the 
username: I tried the following.  I enrolled a student with username 
isaac.newton (Note period in the name).  The student was successfully 
enrolled and is displayed on the roster with username isaacnewton (no 
period).  When I login in as Isaac Newton, I find that I can successfully 
logon with either username isaac.newton or isaacnewton.    Both work fine; 
lon-capa seems to be forgiving when it comes to periods in usernames.

Are there any known problems with enrolling students with a username in the 
format firstname.lastname?

-thanks! Mike D.
