First I've heard of that one, except that I did see someone in the
participants list with one name, and another name in the chat window ONCE.

My first thought is to completely delete the c:\windows\cuseeme.ini file,
and the next time you run CU it will be recreated. Don't forget to adjust
your transmit and receive maximum settings when you enter your nickname for
the new ini information.

If that doesn't fix the problem, you might think very seriously of BUYING
the White Pine version. It has many enhancements over the Cornell version,
including better codecs and a much nicer phone book (reflector setup list)
which allows for a conference number for those neato private reflectors of
which some people are members.
