(Forgive me if this is the wrong project :) )
I just renamed KStine (WMF) to KStineRowe (WMF) on office.wikimedia.org. The rename went through, but instead of a confirmation, I just received this error:
A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. [XIBO6wpAICkAAGjD2acAAACU] 2019-03-06 22:51:24: Fatal exception of type "Wikimedia\Rdbms\DBTransactionError"
Note that I did immediately attempt to rename the account again, but received the much more readable error The user "KStine (WMF)" does not exist.
