%REVINFO{...}% is implemented chiefly with TWiki::Render::renderRevisionInfo()

In TWiki::Render::renderRevisionInfo(), TWiki::Users::getLoginName() is called but may fail to get the login name of the user who updated the topic. In such a case, TWiki::Render::renderRevisionInfo() falls back to the cUID as $username, $wikiname, and $wikiusername.

With $username and $wikiname, that's fine. But $wikiusername needs to be prefixed by {UsersWebName} followed by dot even if the login name cannot be obtained.
