Mismatch between usernames in bazaar configurations

Bug Description

In order for a user to download sourcecode the following needs to be set:
~/.bazaar/authentification.conf (Username property) == ~/.bazaar/bazaar.conf

If there is a missmatch here - the corresponding message from bazaar command-line should be shown in its present form (so user is able to copy and paste it into google), including a human understandable suggestion on what has gone wrong.

If there is a problem such as this, then the program should either a) fix it or b) ask the user which of the usernames is correct.

There should never be an instance where a user should have to go to google to fix a problem such as this.

Could you make some steps to reproduce? We'll need to test this so a fix can be sought and i'm not sure how I would reproduce it.

well... In order to find the solution I also tried to install the "bazaar-explorer" package in order to maybe find the error.

Before realizing this error was depending on the username diff I also did the fingerprint/key-stuff with with launchpad account I thought this where something that you where needing in order to check out the sourcecode...

BUT... the thing I think i did to make this happen was, that I after I had configured ground-control - I changed my launchpad username.
And this change may only have reflected one of those config files?

I will try remember more and comeback with information if I can think of something that could have caused this error to occur. If there is something explicitly you need - ask.

Best Regards
