Item5871: User mapper builds a map also based on topic author fields casing failures

A mysterious failure.

When you perform a search and probably also other cases the user mapper looks up the author field in the TOPICINFO and tried to map it to Wikiname. This fails if the author is not there or it is a topic from the old Cairo or 4.0 days where the author was the wikiname and not login name.

A symptom of this is an edit table which causes conflict with yourself if the same topic has a search which finds topics which was last edited by YOU with your Wikiname. E.g. an old Cairo topic that has not been edited since.

Release blocker.

The search module wasn't mapping users found by the search to cUIDs correctly. This resulted in the cache being populated with an incorrect mapping.
