I inadvertently messed up my password by click 
the "Email New Password" button on the login screen. I 
never received the new password, though I tried several 
passes, and since my old password is gone, I don't know 
what to do. My email address was supplied, is this a 
bug? Another user tried this, and reported the same 
result--no password was mailed.

I cannot reproduce this. Not only did the system correctly send me a new e-mail,
but the old password still worked as well.
