FS#2598 - user registration in admin area: "username taken" but the problem is "email taken"

Trying to add a new user having the same email address as an another user in the do=admin&area=newuser section results in

“That username is already taken. You will need to choose another one.”

instead of

“Email address has already been taken”

(I’ve stumbled on this issue because I have an older disabled user with the same email address)

I cannot reproduce it with Flyspray master on PHP 7.4.4

I tried several user registration workflow settings:

  1. with/without email confirmation
  2. with/without required confirmation by an admin
  3. with an enabled/disabled user having the same email address

In every case they showed the correct error message (language translation for ‘emailtaken’ from lang/*.php) if the username is unique but the email address is used.

Could it provide more details? user registration settings, PHP version, screenshot, Flyspray version?

Sure, here they are:
PHP 5.5.9
Flyspray 1.0-rc9

Aww, you meant when being logged in as admin! And I tried all the time as guest user trying to register to reproduce!
