That could be for 2 reasons. First, his registration process doesn't use
your owner name at all. All bet are open as to what he is using, then.
Second, he uses your owner name and somehow he did assume what your owner
name was. If he was wrong, then that would explain why you're having a
problem. I guess only Hiroshi will be able to clear that up...
