New username isn't checked for spaces when added to LDAP
Status in Mahara:
Mahara version: 16.10.3
When adding a new user, if you select an institution/authentication
method with LDAP, the usersame is not being checked for
leading/trailing spaces, and it isn't trimmed before being added to
the database. Users can be created with usernames like " newuser ".
If you try to do this with a non LDAP authentication method, it thows
an error and will not continue (although the error message does not
highlight the username field as the source of the error in this case).
I've fixed it locally with trim() around the username value before
it's put into the databse.
