affected function/class: WP_User_Query or get_users

role parameter when it combined with meta_query, it will produce unexpected result.

PROBLEM/EXAMPLE: it's impossible to make query user with role 'editor' which has last_name 'alex' OR first_name 'alex'

$args = Array(
   'role'  => 'editor',
   'meta_query' => Array(
       'relation' => 'OR',
	'key'     => 'first_name',
	'value'   => 'alex',
	'compare' => 'LIKE'),
         'key'     => 'last_name',
         'value'   => 'alex',
         'compare' => 'LIKE')

query debug:

WHERE 1=1 AND ( (wp_usermeta.meta_key = 'first_name' AND CAST(wp_usermeta.meta_value AS CHAR) LIKE '%alex%')
OR  (mt1.meta_key = 'last_name' AND CAST(mt1.meta_value AS CHAR) LIKE '%alex%')
OR  (mt2.meta_key = 'wp_capabilities' AND CAST(mt2.meta_value AS CHAR) LIKE '%\"editor\"%') )

it will simply return all 'editor'.

SOLUTION: role should use AND relation independently regardless the custom relation.
