The dump will just list whatever's in the table; each revision record carries
both a rev_user and a rev_user_text field. Depending on how imports, user
renames, and database cleanup proceed over time, it's normal to have some
inconsistencies in there:

* with user_id of 0, you will sometimes see non-IP user names that elsewhere
appear with a legit user id
* sometimes you will find a legit user_id paired with an old username

You should consider the username listed in a revision record to be merely
advisory when a non-zero user ID is present. Current user information ought in
theory to be available in a more canonical form somewhere else...
