user:USER does not work for /search

The request to /search/user:USER does not work, although it presumably worked some time ago. We get a "Internal Server Error: java.lang.RuntimeException: Can't handle request for param object: org.bibsonomy.database.params.BibTexParam@24933a52" exception. I think the cause is that order=RANK is set but GetResourcesForUser checks for nullOrEqual(param.getOrder(), Order.ADDED). This could be caused by the (not so recent anymore) change to return ranked results for fulltext search.

A fix could be to allow also the RANK order (though this could interfere with FolkRank) or to set it to ADDED when no query term is given.
