afaics this guy created his account as :Ukuk, problem
occur when, from
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utilisateur::Ukuk, I
access his contributions since what is displayed are
contributions for 'Ukuk' not ':Ukuk'. I dunno if this
bug is "illegal char in user nick" or a "bad stripping
of ':' at start of nick name'

This bug can be seen as a security problem.

    Account creation code has been changed. It does not allow
    user names starting with a : any longer.

    There are no more users having a username starting with : on
    frwiki and on enwiki. New users will not be able to create
    accounts using these names. => closed.
