Error description

  • If you create a new user and don't apply the creation before
    setting their password, the password will not be set correctly
    and will expire.
    
    This causes particular problems if the user does not have
    permission to change there password.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - in the "New User" dialog enter a username and on the
    "Details" tab set a password
     - click <OK> on the "New User" and "Manage Users" dialogs
     - attempt to login with the new user using the password
    specified, it will fail reporting that it has expired
    
    That doesn't happen if the password is set after clicking <OK>
    on the "New User" and "Manage Users" dialogs.
