Summary0025097: login username is not trimmed

When an LDAP user with username log in, if he/she put space in front or at the end of the username, he will still be authenticated and logged in, however, user table will have a new entry with the spaces as username.

This is not desirable at least.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. use LDAP authentication
  2. login with a valid username and password
  3. check the user is created in user table
  4. now log out and log in again, with a space in front of the username, and the valid password
  5. log in succeed
  6. however, check user table, there will be another user created with username: username (with the space in front)

suggest fix is to add a trim in login_password_page.php file:

$f_username              = trim(gpc_get_string( 'username', '' ));
