If you do a search for "Curry Recipes Hubpages" - just to show HP ones the links in the SERP vary.
Both go to the article. In one case the author is listed by name greatcook.hubpages and in the other not. Why the difference and does it matter?

There's an older thread on this, although I don't remember the title. Paul E said they were aware of it, that google is doing something, that he doesn't know what and they aren't telling.
He also noted at the time that nothing published after 10/2011 was showing the funny URL's. Don't know if that's still true or not.
Interestingly, the hubs of mine that don't have my name are generally doing much better in the SERP's - whatever G is doing seems to bump those hubs several places. Paul had caught that, too.
