      Description

      MDL-30148 added 3 tighter checks on $instance->password in enrol/guest/lib.php

      eg

      -        if (empty($instance->password)) {
      +        if ($instance->password === '') {

      Since the default value of this field in the database is actually NULL this now breaks sites like moodle.org with a lot of guest access by forcing everyone to type a guest password.
