I tried to edit a backend-user (it's the same for groups) and got the errormessage as in bug http://bugs.typo3.org/view.php?id=15292&nbn=1
So I installed the proposed patch http://bugs.typo3.org/file_download.php?file_id=12514&type=bug
But, in my case this patch doesn't fix the problem, it only changes the errormessage to the one I have attached.
Btw, it is no problem to edit users which have been created after I installed typo3 4.4.1. The problem occurs with all users I created while I was running typo3 4.1.12.

#1 Updated by Andreas Klein about 9 years ago

I just tried typo3 4.4.0 and the problem doesn't exist in this release. The problem is only present in 4.4.1.

#2 Updated by Oliver Hader about 9 years ago

Please test the SVN TYPO3_4-4 branch or test the upcoming TYPO3 4.4.2 release - the behaviour your reported is fixed there...

#3 Updated by Maik Matthias about 9 years ago

I can confirm this bug. Same problem in Typo 4.4.2 release.

#4 Updated by Maik Matthias about 9 years ago

I fixed the bug in Typo 4.4.2 by changing the function getIcon in class.t3lib_treeview.php (line 655 ff) as follows:

function getIcon($row) {
if ($this->iconPath && $this->iconName) {
$icon = '<img'.t3lib_iconWorks::skinImg('',$this->iconPath.$this->iconName,'width="18" height="16"').' alt=""'.($this->showDefaultTitleAttribute ? ' title="UID: '.$row['uid'].'"':'').' />';
} else {
$icon = '';
if (is_array($row)) {
$icon = t3lib_iconWorks::getSpriteIconForRecord($this->table, $row, array(
'title' => ($this->showDefaultTitleAttribute ? 'UID: ' . $row['uid'] : $this->getTitleAttrib($row)),
'class' => 'c-recIcon'
return $this->wrapIcon($icon,$row);

DonĀ“t know about possible side-effects yet.

One more hint to the background of the described problem: It seem to have a relation to the extension tt_news. It occurs when an older version of tt_news (2.x) was installed before.

#6 Updated by Andreas Klein about 9 years ago

Yes, as Maik said, the problem occurs only, if an older tt_news plugin was installed. I upgraded to typo3 4.4.2 an tt_news 3.0.1, but it doesn't help.

#7 Updated by Andreas Klein almost 9 years ago

I just tried typo3 4.4.4. It is still the same problem.

#8 Updated by Andreas Klein almost 9 years ago

I applied the patch from Maik Matthis and it helped to solve the problem.
Hope this patch will be included in future releases.
