I registered an account at en.wikipedia.org with the username stepheneb.
I received an e-mail address confirmation and when I clicked on the link the site reported a Database error:
A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:
(SQL query hidden)
from within function "User::addToDatabase". MySQL returned error "1062: Duplicate entry 'Stepheneb' for key 2 (10.0.0.235)".
I have been able to login using the new account.
I don't think I had created this account previously but is is possible I had several years ago.
There was no indication until clicking the confirm link that this could be a duplicate account.
Adding shell keyword. Investigations by a server admin needed.
Confirmemail should not be calling addToDatabase().
Anyway, I just removed and re-added my email to get the confirmation email. I clicked it, and it worked fine.
Possibly related to CentralAuth
Has this issue ever reoccurred?

Barring evidence it has, this is just clogging up bugzilla.
