Re: Profile Change resets User PW
Just mentioning this hear in case anyone is having a similar issue. On a new WordPress 2.6.2 installation, I have noticed that when I access the user profile page, the first password field already has a password in it, asterisked out. When I look at what that value is, it appears to be the value of the existing password, in the field for the new password (first field of two.)
I will check WordPress.org and file a bug there or see if anyone else has had a similar experience. It just seemed somehow related to this weirdness.
