Multi-Site bug in PostAuthorComboBox for Super Admins not part of Site

Reported by: haykuro's profile haykuro Owned by:

If you have 50+ users on your site, the PostAuthorComboBox is used to display the "author" search/selector on the Post Edit screen.

For Super Admin's in Multi-Site setup, the author combo box does not display when editing a post if the admin is not part of the site.

The author lookup happens here:

And if that fails, and the user is not part of the "authors" ( ), then the "postAuthor" remains undefined, and we get no combobox:
