The problem of the bhwiki user more complicated, because after few months for change the user name globally, a new one create account under the old name, so all log entries linked to the old name, although it should linked to the new name.

I think it should be fixed as fast as we can, or we should notice all stewards about that (to take a look if the user name changed or not, if changed to take another look on the previous name logs)- This is important for example on requests related to permissions.

Should the task be set to UBN then?

A task sitting from 2014 cannot be UBN (if you refer to T85023). @Aklapper knows better though.

No.
