[OSM-dev] Display of traces stops afer username is altered

When a user alters their username (using the box in the left column),
their traces are no longer displayed in the main public lists, in the
list of public traces tagged with a certain tag, or even under their
own /user/x page (neither using the old name or the new one). When a
name is changed back, it doesn't help.

On a similar note, should URLs to users be able to be changed? I think
users should be able to change their usernames as much as they want -
if they so wish - but the permalink to their list of traces should
remain at the same address (perhaps a numeric user id?).
