Encoding problem with Special:GlobalUserRights
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hello. When doing some tests at testwiki, trying to change the global group membership of a test account of mine I noticed that after successfully changing the global group permissions of that test account the system gives me an error message saying that there's no user name exists with that name.

I believe this is caused because a encoding bug. Because:

Regards.

Looks like the special page is failing to normalize the username format (it should run through Title parsing and get the text form, which contains spaces).

Looks like the special page is failing to normalize the username format (it
should run through Title parsing and get the text form, which contains spaces).

Should it? Title normailzation will not work on wikis with disabled title capitalization (while usernames are always capitalized).

Title normalization for user namespace will force to caps, as the User namespace is always capitalized.

Fixed on trunk in r90221; needs backport to 1.17 & 1.18 or else wait 6-12 months for 1.19 to go live.
