No

The theme displays the constant
string "UserPreferences" in the user name area, rather
than the logged in user name.

I fixed this by copying the code from the classic theme.
See attached patch.

    It's not that simple... The theme shows a link to the user's
    home page, *if they have one*, but just a "UserPreferences"
    link otherwise. This is fine if the user has a homepage, but
    otherwise there is no indication of the username.

    Suggestion - have the homepage link always, when the user
    is logged on, it's a way of creating the homepage if you don't
    have one. Or have the username in (non-link) plain text if he
    has no homepage.

    I'll try to produce a revised patch.

    OK, this patch displays the user name, as a link if the user
    has a homepage, and just as plain text if (s)he does not.
