Where is the bug for this? I know  
<http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/11798> and there are maybe more.  
But I couldn’t find the bug discussion.

I tried to fix this in my own installation:

- $key = preg_replace('/[^a-z0-9]/i', '', $key);
+ if ( !is_string($key) or (!preg_match('/[^a-z0-9]/i', $key) ) )
		// This could be done much better …
		die('Go away!');

Changeset 11798 for example doesn’t look for U+00A0 (&nbsp;), U+0000 etc.

Could this be a problem?
