Are you able to change the password without authenticating? You should have
already authenticated in order to change the password.

Are you suggesting this is notABug?
If you are not able to change the password unless you authenticate, then this is
not a bug. I suppose it could be an enhancement request to make it work like
other new password screens in other programs - prompt for old password then new
password twice. So yes, this is either notABug or an enhancement request - in
other words, not a regression.
