Summary0015349: multi-byte characters in user attributes
DescriptionJust like only for user attributes.

This is relevant for:
1) The usage of [attribute] in messages.
2) Searching by attribute in the list of users.
3) Displaying the search result of searching by attribute in the list of users
4) The user's preferences page
5) The admin's edit screen of individual users.

Things like such users are being unsearchable (by the relevant attribute) - even if you use slash in your search - is why I classified it as a major error.
TagsNo tags attached.

I can't actually replicate this. But that might be because I don't have names that require quoting.

is it in attribute names that it goes wrong? Can you give and example?

For example, if (in UTF-8 encoding) your username is called ?'?? ??

Oh, how I wish you'd allow editing submissions. Anyway, I mean the bold part in

I just tried in trunk and for some reasons hebrew characters in user attributes don't work. So that needs looking at.

I guess the error I had was on a non-UTF-8 DB.

I found the places to strip the slashes. But somehow the search still doesn't find them.

I added a subscriber with name ????????? and searched for it and it found the subscriber.

Not entirely sure this is all fine, but resolving for now.

mantis doesn't handle the characters, but it was "Newsletter" in Hebrew, which seems to have the quoted characters.
