[open] EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL - fromName vs. fromDisplayName

The event 'EVENT_CHAT_MESSAGE_CHANNEL' has two parameters, fromName - which is supposed to be the character name of the user posting the chat message - and fromDisplayName - which is supposed to be the user id of the user posting the chat message.

It seems with the latest update, fromName is also the user's user id when posting in Guild Chat. Posting in zone still seems to work as expected.

Are you certain that you don't have some chat addon altering the values in those fields or something?

I ask only because, well, I'd expect that my guild chat wouldn't have shown both character and account names while I was playing, but it showed both correctly.

I disabled all addons except one I called 'test' with the attached .lua and .txt files in it. I also attached what it printed when people spoke in my guild chat.

My account settings are set to use the UserID ('@Accountname') and not the Character Name. Changing the setting to be one or the other makes no difference.
