He's correct about the Bovine32 client doing that.  If you type an email 
address that has 20 chars, then edit it so it's 15 chars, it still has the 
extra 5 chars on the end.  Going into the INI file allows you to edit it 
and make it correct, but it's not what is causing the problems...

Negative. The corruption occurs with the TimC client and
with the linux clients as well. It's a bug in the stats
that perhaps was uncovered by the new proxies.
