 This is a follow-up to #18039.

 On user save from the admin the input is not unslashed and so the
 1. wordpress thinks that the email has changed, has it is compared against
 a unslashed value
 2. it uses the slashed input which isn't a valid email address to send the
 email was changed message

 Can we unslash the email input in the wp_insert_user and wp_update_user
