Changing the capitalization of a name doesn't appear to save if that is the only change being made. You can add a 1 on the end (or any other modification), save it, then edit it a second time with the proper case and remove the 1.
In that case, you could use the Script Runner addon by Jamie Echlin. There is a built in script for chaning the Username.
After installing Script Runner and re-indexing, go to your JIRA Addons admin section. There will be a new set of links on the left side under SCRIPT RUNNER. Click on Builtin Scripts. On the page that loads, select the 'Renames a user ID' script. This was how we updated usernames prior to JIRA adding the editor.
