I looked up that mail, and quoting from it:
>> i ask myself where and why does silva need the fullname in the public
>> view? i searched through the layout code of the eth and the single
>> location where the fullname is used is in the sitemap. but we have
>> disabled the display of the author names...
The only place in the public view where I know full name is asked for
is *if and when* the author is included in the metatags, e.g.:
<meta name="author" content="Fritz Lang" />
and this is in use on the mat.ethz.ch site.
However this doesn't solve the problem of having one glitch cause such
problems. We'll have to investigate that particular code.
