Extra networkwide param in activate_plugin function

The issue is an extra $_GET parameter that is added in the activate_plugin function.

<?PHP //wp-admin/includes/plugin.php:639
$_GET['networkwide'] = 1;

In my case, I had been using the activate_plugin function in the mu-plugins directory to protect some plugins against deactivation.

As a result, this parameter had an impact on the OAuth authorization process in one of the plugins because this networkwide has been used to build the signature.

I know the size of the potential impact is really small but in my opinion, this parameter should be unset at the end of the function.
