several complaints by users of de.wikipedia, that they can´t log in since mediawiki 1.4 is
running because they´re using german umlauts in their passworts like ä, ö or ü. Some of
them didn´t specify an email-adress, so it´s impossible for them to get an automatically
created new one ... this problem was once fixed for version 1.3.
problem was reported at http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia Diskussion:MediaWiki_1.4
Created attachment 191 [details]
Re-enables fix in User.php for REL1_4
The old fix for old passwords (from before the UTF8 conversion) is now back on
If you were affected, please change your password so it gets encoded correctly
to avoid this happening again, or set an email address.
