Change field names in mail.message sent by track_visibility

regarding the default project form view, every changes made on the field "Project Manager" are noted down on the message history on the bottom. Although, if someone noticed, instead of writing: 
"Project Manager: Former user -> New user"
it writes
"User id: Former user -> New user"

This is probably because the mail.message module is using the field name and not the field label caption. Is it somehow possible to change this without changing the name of the field? 

Additional Question: I have an additional many2many field marked as track_visibility='onchange'.
Now if any changes occur on this field the following message is written:
"New field name: res.users(40,) → res.users(7, 40)"
Is there a way to show the full names in order not to irritate the user with those cryptic names?

Thank you

What version are you using. I tested it in the latest odoo v8 runbot, it is working fine as "Project Manager: Administrator → Demo User"
