Description Damian Jansen 2013-06-26 19:51:39 EDT
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.
Comment 1 Damian Jansen 2013-06-27 21:49:04 EDT
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.
