#5901 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Inconsistent user option name sanitization

update_user_option sanitizes the option name, because it sends the option to update_usermeta which does the sanitizing. However, get_user_option doesn't sanitize the option name before checking whether the option is among the userdata. So, if your option name has non-kosher characters, you'll never be able to retrieve it using get_user_option.

The attached patch sanitizes the option in get_user_option.
