On the edit mode, it will show only user name. But you can still search using Full name. You cannot change it without modifying the javascripts etc.

On the view mode, it will show full name with a link to the profile. That is the expected behavior.

Thanks for the nifor, is there a way to change the core java script for User Picker field to show both user name and user full name? just like Reporter and Assignee field?
