As I understand it, mv_username is primarily a CGI variable which
you pass from a form to Interchange when you want to log in (and
when you use the default Interchange's UserDB functions which
expect the username in mv_username).

After the user is logged in, [data session username] or 
$Session->{username} is what you should be using, not 
value mv_username.
