OnDemand "Last Executer" display - bug?

Starting 2 releases back, JIRA OnDemand started showing the below text:

<a class="user-hover" rel="chanks" id="email_chanks" href="/secure/ViewProfile.jspa?name=chanks">user's name deleted</a>

Rather than just the user's name, which I deleted for the purposes of this question. Obviously, it changes as the executer changes. Are we the only folks having that problem?

You are not alone in seeign this. More specifically, what you are describing is the result of how we handle and present internal values for deleted users.

In other words, its displaying those tag values because the deleted user was associated to a page, issue or component (in your case it would be a page since the user in question was the executer).

Ideally that information would be suppressed or handled in a more graceful manner.

In short, it is by design to indicate that the user no longer exists.

No, that's incorrect.

The user is still there - I "deleted" it in that I removed the users's name from the text above. The user still exists.

I'm seeing the same issue. The user does, in fact, exist. The user is me, and I'm the administrator in the system. :)
