Description DaB 2006-02-09 21:10:06 UTC
In german wikitionary I have renamed a user from "Gunblade" to "gunblade". Now
he can't login. brion tells me, that I need to rename the user, but I can't.
Special:Renameuser tells me, that a user "gunblade" doesn't exist, but
special:listuser list him.

I've done this one manually, but it would be good to fix up Renameuser to:
1) Don't allow renaming a user to an invalid username
2) Do allow renaming an invalid username to a valid one!

Fixed with r20841.

Found another bug (and fixed it): oldusername was written with NS0 instead of
NS2 into logs

Just poking this to test a bugzilla mail issue.
