Registered a new login with pretty muich the same data (using "_" in
login instead of a ".") and indeed it works.
There should be no non-ascii data, although I'm pretty sure there
shouldn't have been any in the previous form as well.

Maybe receiving code somehow misinterpreted the "." in the login
Otherwise it could've been just my mistake I guess, but it's quite hard
to make though.

Thanks for looking into a problem in such a timely manner.
