#12767: Problem with buddy name

 I've noticed for a long time that the buddy name gets truncated for
 certain people.  I found the commonality to be the way the administrator
 assigned the name.

 For instance: "Crane, Dave x28619,Crane,Crane,Crane" displays as "Dave
 x28619" (truncated)

           or: "Passes, Harvey,Passes" displays as "Harvey" (truncated)

         but: "Farley, Peter x23353" displays as "Farley, Peter x23353"
 (full name).

 When I assign an alias name to display the full name, it displays the
 alias until the next time I reconnect, then it goes back to the truncated
 name again.

 Protocol is "Sametime".
