Comment 1 Sebastian Skracic 2008-08-26 09:56:43 UTC
Fixed in r118986 - user.setDetails now validates the password against the .xsd file, just like the Web frontend does.

Comment 4 Stephen Herr 2008-08-26 20:23:31 UTC
fails qa, I can still change the password. It will throw an error over the password being too short but not the bad characters.
