     A big thanks to Claus Assman (he/she also had the right solution)
     and all others who responded. Below is Claus's response.
     Don't use uppercase letters...: man 5 passwd:
     username is the user's login name. This field con-
     tains no uppercase characters, and must not be more than eight
     characters in length.
     If you really need it, set the flag 'u' in
     u Upper case should be preserved in user names for
     this mailer.
     Thanks again,
