Invalid user name causes article creation error

Reported by Stefan | May 8th, 2009 @ 10:32 AM

Create a new cms application. When asked for the initial user and password, use admin / admin. The dialog asks for an email, but admin is accepted. Now, when you try to create your first article, this will fail without any hint that it's because admin doesn't look like an email address.

I recommend to add a validation to the Admin::InstallController if you really need to ignore validation in User#create_superuser. Or at least, raise a better error message.
