I'm very pleased to see some life on this!  (Nothing against 2.0, but 
there are some critical issues in 1.4.x that until now needed manual 
patching with posts from the mailing list).

I think you managed to get most of the changes, though there is one that 
you might want to add: it has to do with mapping case in xdb storage 
files.  This is to avoid problems when users try to log in with their 
username capitalized differently than when they created the account.

The patch attached below is a crude solution to the problem.  I've been 
using it for quite some time now on my servers, but I am not sure if it 
is the best way to solve the problem.  Someone who knows the codebase 
better should probably look this over.
