Usernames with periods in them lead to broken links

Since users created using the API default to the username being the part of the email address before the @, we end up having a lot of users with the username as “firstname.lastname”.

When I try clicking on those users names from the users list, it ends up giving me a 404 page. It appears that for users without the period, the username link of:
domain.org/users/username will autocomplete to domain.org/users/username/activity, which is a valid URL.
But for users with a period in the name, the /activity doesn’t get added on to the end and the URL fails to be valid as a consequence.

Has this one been reported already? I’m on version: v1.7.0.beta10 +38
