Description Damian Jansen 2013-06-26 23:51:39 UTC
Description of problem:
If an administrator changes a user's login username and password in the same action, they will be unable to log in ("Login failed").

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Easily, Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in as admin
2. Change a user username and password
3. Press Save
4. Logout
5. Attempt to log in as that user with the new credentials

Actual results:
Error, "Login Failed"

Expected results:
User is logged in

Additional info:
Does not seem to occur if the username and password are set in different account save actions. Changing the password again after the account is broken fixes the login.

Bug was "Changing a user's username and password in the same step breaks their login"

The bug is being able to change a user's username at all.
