I've not found a way of forcing this behaviour for all users (privacy issue), but noticed one of our from-moodle users doesn't see usernames in the Online Users list but every other user I've tried does.

How is it decided whether or not a user sees the usernames of online users in mahara's right hand column?

In most places what should happen is that administrators and staff get to see usernames, but ordinary users don't see them. 

Admins and staff can also see users' real names as well as their display names, but there are a couple of settings in site options and user preferences that can change that behaviour.
