      Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Create a subwiki with option "Both global and local users are available in the wiki"
      2. In a private window, access to the subwiki and click on "Log-In"
        (http://localhost:8080/xwiki/wiki/subwiki/login/XWiki/XWikiLogin)
      3. On the Log-in page, click on "Forgot your password?"
      4. Put the email address of a Global user.
      5. Even if this user is registered in the farm and has access to the wiki, the following message is displayed "The *** user does not exist"

      It causes issues in a farm with several subwikis, and users sometimes forgetting their passwords. When they try to connect to a subwiki and want to recover their password, they don't manage to retrieve it.

      Possible workaround: If the login is known as a global user one, redirect to the main wiki login page.
