creating a user by using editusers.cgi (administrative) the field disabled text will be set to '' (because the edit field is empty) Using the login screen (results in globals.pl:InsertNewUser) the field will not be set and keeps NULL This results in hang of edit user created in the second way - the details screen (editusers.cgi?action=edit&user=...) will never be opened You can fix this by setting disabled text to '' in globals.pl
Hmm... I haven't seen this particular issue with editusers not loading, but there does seem to be some inconsitancy w/the way disabledtext is handled, even just within checksetup.pl. At line 1012 where it is defined in the table declaration, it's simply "disabledtext mediumtext", but at line 1828 where the AddField is called to add it to a pre-existing database, it's defined as "disabledtext mediumtext not null". I think the proper declaration should be "not null" which would make an it "" when empty rather than null. Patch to checksetup.pl forthcoming. If this is causing the problems described here, it should be included in 2.14.
