I intensely dislike this behaviour. 

The problem arises because there is a need to save a default player name, and 
the settings file is currently the only place to do this.

What I suggest is:
A default name for when a "human" player is selected.
Default names for when gnubg is the player, e.g. Gnubg Expert, Gnubg World 

When an interactive match is started (rather than loaded from file), these 
defaults could be set into the names for player 1 and player 0. I suppose that 
this would be similar to what happens when a match is imported; the names from 
the file are set to player 0 and player 1.

If you were really being a smart-arse, it might be feasible to take the human 
name from the users log-on name. Unsure whether this is really useful, though.
