some non-ascii characters do not show up in uploaded usernames and result in invalid usernames
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

I reproduced this with the following list of users pasted into the text box:
Mária Dobøemyslová
Veronika Rudolfová
Marc22
RoreiD
Petra Skalníková
Kateøina Kuèerová
Malástudentka
V-andrea
Daniel Hašek
Tomáš Mihulka
Botanick
VerCapkova
Janneda
Omphalotusia

The resulting cohort showed the following invalid users:
Tomáš Mihulka
Mária Dobøemyslová
Malástudentka
Kateøina Kuèerová
Daniel Hašek

Tomáš Mihulka and Daniel Hašek display as "Tomá Mihulka" and "Daniel Haek" in the username column (https://metrics.wmflabs.org/cohorts/4788/membership) but copy/paste as above (the usernames of all invalid users listed above were c/ped from the username column on the cohort page, not from the original list).

Firefox 36.0, Ubuntu 14.10.

I just got feedback from a user today that they couldn't upload their usernames in Arabic (assuming the same issue described here). Pasting the usernames in the text box worked fine, however (resulting in valid usernames in the cohort).

Declining because Wikimetrics is being discontinued. See: T211835.
