My Spark is set to run on startup (through a registry entry) and also joins a conference immediately upon connection.
The thing is, when I join in this manner, my nickname is my username (first part of my JID) and not my “real name”. This information is retrieved from our LDAP server (previously Windows 2000 AD, now Windows 2003 AD).
If I close Spark (either before it connects or once it connects and joins the conference), wait 30 or more seconds and reopen it, I join the conference with my “real name” instead of username
We’re using Openfire 3.4.1 and Spark 2.5.8 but it’s been happening since it was called Wildfire and Spark 1.x.
Also, it would be nice if, when clicking on a user in the conference, instead of chatting with their “conference” ID of themselves it chatted with the “regular” instances of themselves.
Edit: I’ve noticed that this actually occurs throughout Spark. My name in the roster is my username, and my avatar image (also retrieved from AD LDAP) is not there. If I close Spark and wait for the login script (in our case, a KIX script) to finish, and then reopen Spark, all is as it should be.

Changed to reflect the issue happening Spark-wide, not just on conferences
