Description Prodego 2008-01-12 18:53:20 UTC
The way Special:Userrights is written causes it to stop reading username once it reaches a @ symbol, and then check for the -interwiki right. While this would work on a new installation, it lacks backwards compatibility for wikis that have users with an @ symbol in their username, before this was disallowed. The software thinks you are changing a user at another wiki, not a local user with @ in their name. While a user with the -interwiki right might be able to do username@whatever@wikiname [not tested], this is still an issue.

The bug is that the at-sign hasn't yet been removed from existing usernames.  It's supposed to be invalid.  See bug 12581 (which would also resolve this, so I'll mark this as duplicate).

This can be considered fixed by the fix for bug 13135.
