know about this bug (which apparently only occurs when using mysql).
The next update will make hardcopy operate the same as everything else
(i.e. King will be allowed). hardcopy was checking for users
differently from all other modules. The long term plan is to fix it so
that logins are case sensitive and king and King will be different,
hopefully that is what most people want.|
Technically the problem is that keys in mySQL are always checked (by mySQL) in a case insensitive way, so that checking for the existence of a student King or kIng or kinG will match a key named king and be satisfied. We'll need to change the checking mechanism.
