Jaunty: Python wubi takes your windows username as a full name

Bug Description

In the screenshot below you will see my windows username displayed as my full name in fusa.

This doesn't represent the username I typed into wubi which I think it would be better to use.

I don't know if it is possible to do this in the code that you have or not but might be a little less confusing for first time users.

The Username I selected was tester which is how I log in however as you can see from the screenshot it's not what fusa thinks I'm called

In my opinion the full name should not be guessed, because lots of times manufacturers puts some defaults ('User' 'HP' 'Dell' 'Home')

Wubi should simply give the same inputs as the normal installation, which asks for both real name and user name.
