Error description

  • If a user has the "User may change password" deselected, even
    the Administrator can't change the password for that user.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - As the Administrator, open the Edit User dialog for a user
     - on the Security tab, deselect the "User may change password"
    option
     - apply the changes by clicking <OK> in the Edit User and
    Manage Users dialogs
     - reopen the Edit User dialog and on the Security tab attempt
    to change the password, it will fail
    
    To workaround:
    
    As the Administrator select the "User may change password"
    option, apply the changes, set the new password, then deselect
    the "User may change password" option again.
