Users really shouldn't edit their User profile via WordCamp (But I realise the need to, since most organisers might not know where else to change their Display Name, etc), but disabling that page is probably more trouble than it's worth.

This would probably be fixed by my recent charset HyperDB fixes once ported to WordCamp.
