the user supplied a openid with a semicolon instead of the colon. instead of a validation / login error he got a 500. trace is:

#1 Updated by Jean-Baptiste Barth about 12 years ago

  • Affected version (unused) changed from 0.9.1 to devel
  • Affected version deleted (0.9.1)

Reproduced on current trunk. Actually, it's a URI or ruby-openid defect. Maybe we could find a workaround to avoid 500 error in Redmine.

Sorry, misread the trace on my laptop, the problem is inside our wrapper in vendor/plugins/open_id_authentication. Patch applied in r3933, but there may be other related bugs, don't hesitate to reopen if so.
