Username Conflict

edited August 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
When I create users manually via the Dashboard the form allows the Username to include white spaces. However, when a user then tries to edit their account (Edit My Account) on the front-end they get an error message saying their Username is not valid? This stops them from making any edits (such as changing their gender).

I've noted fixes with editing 'ValidateUsername() function' but these cause errors with URL redirects (the URL has '-' instead of a '+' so the URL doesn't exist).

Surely these conflicts need to be aligned - either white space is allowed everywhere or not?

Is there a fix that works?
