Fake gamertags?

What's the deal with two people in a lobby with the same gamertag?  When you view them, one has a completely different gamertag.

Doesn't that normally show as gamertag1 and gamertag1(1)?

Here's more detail, with your gamertag as an example.

If you look in the list of recently played players, you'll see two players with the gamertag "Kanaye v2."  When you view each one, one will show as "Kanaye v2" but the other will be "joe blow."

Not on elite.  On Xbox Live.

Could it be because of two people using two separate live accounts on the same xbox?  I know in Halo you can do that.  Maybe a glitch caused by that.

Reminds me of a problem that was present when the Metro Dashboard was released. Some users saw their names repeated for everybody that was on a party chat when viewed on the Guide menu.
