MailHandler does not match assignee name with spaces
|Assignee:||Jean-Philippe Lang||% Done:|
We are working with the imap email ticket creation. It basically works except when the name has a - in it. Example would be First name = "IS -" and Last name = "Operations". If the First name is IS and the Last name = "Operations", the email processes fine. I saw while Googling around that I could use the Login instead which is isoperations. Tried that and it fails.
We are on version 1.4.1.stable.9612(MySql).
Our mail client is Exchange.

Confirmed, this test fails when the user has a dash in their first name.
However assigning to the user "dashtest" works fine (the user's log in name).
Actually let me correct myself, the problem is that there is a space in the first name, I think Redmine is splitting on that space, and fails to look up the user.
Setting the name to "IS- Operations" works fine.
So I think it's doing first name "IS", last name "- Operations".

Alright, here is a patch that adds a test that replicates the issue and a fix (Redmine 2.0 default branch).
I added the last combined check as a last-ditch check (re-iteration), I'm a bit worried about catching other names by accident so I only want to grab it if all other name look-ups fail first.
Of course the devs can move that somewhere else if they think that isn't a problem.
