When I create a new member it enforces a unique login name, but it I edit an existing member to have the same login/username it saves without problem.

See U4-2796 however I am experiencing this issue in 7.10.4

@sebastiaan I've started taking a look at this. I have a fix, but it is in Umbraco.Web.Editors.MemberController. Per Shannon's comments in the referenced issue that saving (or not) should be handled in the membership provider, I'm guessing this isn't the desired way to handle it. However, I'm not seeing an obvious location in Umbraco.Web.Security.Providers.MembersMembershipProvider where it should be handled instead.

There is an UpdateUser method in the provider which could be overridden and a check added, but the comment specifies that it 'Updates e-mail approved status, lock status and comment on a user.' So it doesn't seem like the right place either.

Do you have any input on this?
