If an installaion has
$wgCapitalLinks = false;
new user accounts cannot be created with a lowercase first letter.
Special:Userlogin returns an error of "You have not specified a valid user name."
Please note that lowercase first letter usernames worked and were allowed in
Steps to reproduce:
1. Set $wgCapitalLinks = false;
2. Attempt to create an account with a lowercase first letter.
The functionality of this feature got changed in 1.4, it no longer applies to
usernames, the rationale was that allowing usernames where the first character
was lower case on Wikimedia wikis would cause troubles with any future single
marking the bug as INVALID since it's a matter of a change in functionality
