Description Mike.lifeguard 2008-01-24 20:20:06 UTC
I can only see one example currently, but I assume there are others, and other characters are similarly affected.
" (quotes) were converted to " in the username after the switch to the new log. I assume a script was written to transfer from old log to new, and it was a bug in this script. I also assume this can be fixed in a similar manner.
