The user requests a temporary password by email, enters it, and then enters their desired password. They receive a success message from Special:Resetpass, and then a failure message from the login form which executes via FauxRequest during the same real request.
Can't reproduce locally, probably erratic. Not sure why it happens, but obviously avoiding the SELECT query in LoginForm and using a cached password instead would avoid it.
Confirmed this in 1.13 today, receive "no form data" response after entering new password on ResetPass.
Also tested in 1.15 and still failing but gives response "You must be logged in to access this page directly." on page ChangePassword.
At a total loss as to why and really stuck with this. Hard to find docs on it for some reason, though I see lots of google hits for pages showing the error.
Marking it critical since it's a blocker for one of my installations at least :) Moving from "extensions" to main. Correct as required...

Does this still occur?
closing since 1.13 was long, long ago. Reopen if it re-occurs.
