           Summary: RenameUser should log out target user to prevent
                    unwanted recreation of old username
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Renameuser
        AssignedTo: jschulz_4...@msn.com
        ReportedBy: xenow...@gmail.com


It's fairly common that a user will request a rename usually based on a privacy
concern (they used their real name, etc.).

The rename will be performed but because of (I assume) cookies and SUL and
such, the account gets recreated automatically - this is usually undesirable.

Rename should perhaps force a userlogout - if possible - to avoid this
happening. Or perhaps someone has a more elegant solution.
