#3531: Username with special Characters

     Type:  defect          |      Status:  new      
 Priority:  normal          |   Milestone:  2.1      
Component:  Administration  |     Version:  2.1      
 Severity:  major           |    Keywords:  username 
 In older Versions it was allowed to have a Username with special
 characters. f.ex. MP:George

 After updating to beta1 version i wanted to change some settings in the
 userprofile but this does not save since the username is checked again.


 when editing my existing userprofile there is no need to check the
 username before saving since i can´t change it anyway

 In admin_function.php around line 500 wrap if(!validate_username).. with
 if like the following:
  if ( !validate_username( $user->user_login ) )
         $errors->add( 'user_login', __( '<strong>ERROR</strong>: This
 username is invalid.  Please enter a valid username.' ));
