Dot in usernames

This task is part of the FellowshipHacks/Projects/Blog project.

Goal

WPMU has problems if a username contains dots, underscores or dashes.

The kind of problems seems to depend on the particular configuation, used plugins etc (in particular the LDAP plugin that we use).

This is not a bug, but a design decision in WPMU:

We must understand the extent of the problem and find solutions (or harm-reduction).
