Somehow my password has been changed, not sure how this happened as I use LastPass to store them all.

Anyway, I logged in with the authenticator from my account xml file ok, then went to change password, generated a new one, but it requires you to enter your password to save ??

Doesn't this make it impossible to actually change your pw if you don't know the previous one or am I missing something here ?

Common problem here..send a PM to the Admin and he will fix it for you.

Thought I remembered someone finding the work around, just can't remember which project it was posted on.

I can certainly get a pw

I can certainly get a pw request emailed to me, but as I'm about to embark on a long put off change to use a different email across all projects I wanted to point this out. Seems like a fairly obvious bug :)
