Description Todd Pederzani 2007-02-09 18:46:49 UTC
On two 1.9.2 MediaWiki installs the reassignEdits maintenance script fails with
the error "User '' not found.", even when trying different parameters
varying the to and from parameters.  The hosts are different: one has PHP 5.2.0
and MySQL 4.1.15 and the other host has PHP 5.1.6 and MySQL 5.0.24.  Both were
upgraded from 1.6.x; I hope this is not an issue particular to my configurations.

I also had this issue and tracked down the problem to initialiseUser in Replacing the $user-
>loadFromdatabase() call with just load() solves the problem.

Fixed in r20752.
