Although the (human) name of a user is a required field, it is possible to create users without a name, either through the web interface or the epadmin command. If a nameless user visits the rae/select page, the select script fails in rae_default_selection_search and no page is returned. This patch fixes this problem by only searching on family name if a name is defined


Tested on eprints-rae-gold-b1 with EPrints 3
