Yes. Auto-generated node names start with "Node id|". They are not very helpful 
for the intended purpose of a node name which is to help a friend to whom you 
are connected to identify that a particular connection belongs to you and not 
some other friend. Names are supposed to be, well, names! My node is called 
Toad/Dark, for example. The name is *only* visible to Friends, i.e. people you 
have manually exchanged noderefs with, people you know (whether or not you 
trust them), people you've talked to.
