      Description

      When I set up an account manually for a user and select the option to require the user to change the password at their next login then when the user has logged in he gets stuck on login/change_password.php. This page is constantly being reloaded.

            This is because Martin put a require_login() onto login/change_password.php which in turn redirects to login/change_password, leading to the infinite loop.

            Because it looks like Martin has put some thought into this already I will let him fix this.

            I had same problem with 1.5alpha. Downloaded April 26.

            Infinite looping when a user logs in after admin manually enrolls that user and requires new password.

            Fixed in CVS.

            It was the result of a security fix that was made too secure.
