What is the difference between User and Client?

On my V8 Mobility Master's dashboard, for my MD cluster, in Traffic Analysis it shows a column titled "User" which is sometimes an IP address and sometimes a user name, but on the clients panel there is a column titled "client" which is reliably populated with the username.  All clients are on the same SSID with the same role and if I drill into those which are displayed with their User as an IP address, the controller does know their username.


The help text just says "The IP address or username of the connected client".  Well, yes...


What is the difference and why would it sometimes display IP and sometime user?
