Why am I jon.doe when logging into Data Explorer?

I have tried to login the first time to SE Data Explorer, through the Google account, but I got a new for me name jon.doe7352. Logout and attempt to login again brings me to the same point. It doesn't matter, what google account I use - after every try the system insists that I am jon.doe7352. Could it be somehow repaired?

As for similar question Wrong user when logging into Data Explorer, I haven't picked any ID, but now I am recalling, that the page itself, a moment before going to the google page, put something in the ID field. It was too fast to notice what exactly. So, it is a bug?

Every time I login to any StackExchange server after the SO that was my first I got the same my name and a profile connected to my other SE profiles – Gangnus Feb 9 '12 at 16:43

@AnnaLear But it wouldn't be connected to my other SE profiles – Gangnus Feb 9 '12 at 16:44
    
@jadarnel27 Hmm. I haven't picked any ID, but now I am recalling, that the page itself a moment before going to the google page, put something in the ID field. It was too fast to notice what exactly. – Gangnus Feb 9 '12 at 16:46
    
@Gangnus As mentioned in the questions that jardarnel27 linked to, your Data Explorer account is not directly linked to your Stack Exchange account. – Tim Stone Feb 9 '12 at 16:51
    
Oh, really. I mislooked it. Pardon. So, I have to delete the question? – Gangnus Feb 9 '12 at 16:55

First time that happened to me, I was pretty confused too. Only after I recognized the numeric part of my new identity as a user ID did I try out all my OpenID log-ins until I found the one I used originally. Having the default user name be "jon.doe" is not a very smart move IMO, because I had to look up what it means. I thought I'd hijacked someone's account. The fact that it's misspelled doesn't help, either. – a cat Feb 15 '12 at 16:03
