I think the definition of "input error" has to define both components of the
phrase (1. it's an error, and 2. as a result of user effort), and so I like
parts of both Michael's and Tim's suggestions.

Also, how about using terms less along the lines of programming terminology?
For example, use "information" instead of "data". The user is entering
information. It may get treated as data.

So I have a third suggestion:

input error: information entered or omitted by the user that falls outside
the programmed scope.
