Version 4.4, migrating from 3.7 SP4 ASP.NET 4.0.
After running the migration tool, I noticed that the OWNER isn't set consistently throughout the migration process. On most things, the original ADMIN user gets set as the owner, but on others, it seems to pick a different user (from 3.7 site's list of users) and sets him/her as the owner.
For example, the LISTS module ends up with a seemingly random user as the owner on all items (but the same one each time I attempt a migration). Also, BLOGS module seems to pick a different user, assigned to all blog posts. In both cases, it displays the username of the person twice (probably instead of first name and last name). For example, owner = user1 user1.
Under PAGES, it seems to be all over the place. On some pages, it lists the correct SF4 admin user, but on others, sometimes is says "administrator administrator," other times a specific user.
All other areas seem to get it correct, which is putting in the newly-created, all-powerful SF4 admin user.
I understand that old owners are not set to the migrated data, but it would make sense to list the same owner on all of that content, right?
