Problem creating users

Hi,

when I enter the “create user”-page, I get the following:

Apr 20 14:31:29 rt3 postgres[67228]: [1-1] ERROR: invalid input syntax

The user can be created, but I seem to be unable to subsequently move it
to a group - the user is also “invisible” in that I can’t see him in the
list of users, but I can search for him and then edit him.

I had this same error. My wife thought it was when she was
trying to search for all users (the search function changed from 3.0 to
3.4, and so it is harder to search for all users – unless someone knows
of a better way than, “email address contains @” or other such things)

But, anyway, the users were successfully created, and everything 

seems fine now. And the users could be added to privileged groups.

I believe by default users are "invisible" as they are 

unprivileged, and the default search only shows privileged users.

Hm. I looked some more at this.
The “ObjectID” is an integer, at least in my database.
So, the question is: should it be something else or should the
search-string be constructed differently?

Seems that the user needs to be privileged to be added to a group.
Hm. I don’t remember doing that last time I setup RT…

I’d still like to know what that error-message means and if it is
harmless or not.

cheers,
