I am trying to migrate my modified 2.6.9 codebase to the latest 2.7.7. One problem (and CVS is not working so I cannot browse history) is that the

make_alias() function in users_reg.inc.t has changed. In particular,

        return htmlspecialchars($text);


was changed to:

       return char_fix(str_replace(array(']', '['),array(']','['), htmlspecialchars($text)));


Any recollection why?

When I use the 'send email to this user' function, the 'To' field is filled in with these &#93/&#91 characters and I get an Invalid User error code. I'm not sure yet if this is broken elsewhere, but I think this might be a bug.

This was done to prevent fudcode parser problems.
