That is the reason: the two should be identical to avoid the problem.
Does it help to define the environment variable LOGNAME whose value is
the same as the Windows user name, before starting Emacs?

This won't necessarily help, since user-real-login-name might be nil
(not yet initialized) when Emacs processes that line in your .emacs.
Setting LOGNAME in the environment should solve the problem in a more
consistent and predictable way.
