Let my get clarification on two scenarios:
1. User is one of the defined reviewers.  Is it possible for this user to show up as the unknown user?  Maybe they have cookies turned off, maybe they never submit a comment but do spend lots of time looking at diffs.
2. User is not listed in reviewers or cc list.  Is this intruder more or less likely to show up as the unknown user?

Is there any way to prevent this behavior, besides just telling developers to be careful?  (That doesn't work, by the way.)  This is extremely undesirable from our point of view.  We always want to know who spent how much time, particularly if scenario #1 is possible.

Hi David,

It is to do with cookies.  Basically, the first time you make a
comment or submit a review, Codestriker will remember your email
address in a cookie.  From that point on, the email address is used
when recording actions/metrics.  For users who haven't done so, or
have disabled cookies, then you will get the "unknown user".
