we got several reports on Meta about a new bug:
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help_talk:Unified_login#SUL_attempt_failures (everything below)
The problem seems to be:
* if an user tries to get to merge his accounts he gets a "wrong password" failure and can't merge
(the first password querry does not work)
* if that user creates a new account he can merge from there
* the home wiki is then set to the newer account
This seem to happen after bug 14330 got fixed,
all passwords set before that bugfix are not recognized by Special:MergeAccount anymore.
Also the homewiki is totally mixed up.
Many thanks in advance for Your help,

It seems not to work only on accounts created before new password format was introduced.
Should be fixed after r36150, and I truncated globalnames and localnames. Please confirm.
works for me, thanks a lot!
