Possible error with External Authentication

Possible error with External Authentication:

User might have a record with shortname and one with full name.

How to handle this in a situation where auth is done vs. OD, and users [naturally] have both a long/full name and 1 (possibly multiple) shortname(s)?

By 'handle it' I mean that I create a user record whenever a new user logs in. Get ( AccountName ) would return my shortname [jr] if I should choose to log in with this, and my full name [Jens Rasmussen] (from FMP preferences) if I do nothing.
