Within Redmine's member searches (for instance on the 'Members' settings for projects), you have the ability to search for users, however if 2 or more users have the same name, there's no way to distinguish them. In the attached file, you can see there's no way of distinguishing two different John Smiths (short of inspecting page source code to look for user ID number and looking that up).

Can each of the entries here include the user's login after the names? For instance, displaying "John Smith (jsmith)" would remove any ambiguity.

Having the login names displayed in the list of actual group members (under the heading of 'User / Group') would be useful as well - otherwise in order to check who people are one has to click onto their profiles.
