The thing is that:

 * Existing tickets from sourceforge were moved over and the assignee
   name in the database was simply moved into the new database

 * People sign up for the new system with different userids than they
   used at SF (guilty: I'm "dave", was "david_abrahams"). Now if I
   look for tickets assigned to me, I miss them.

 * Just having a place in the new system doesn't guarantee you appear
   in the dropdown list of names to which tickets can be assigned.
   You have to have entered your email address on the system.

Incidentally, it's also a problem that some peoples' userids don't
identify them in a recognizable way.
