      Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Create a user account with email address test@example.com.
      2. Ensure email-based self-registration is enabled in your site.
      3. Log out, and try to create a new account with email test@example.com

      Actual result: you get the validation error: "This email address is already registered. New password?"

      This just got flagged up by a confused user.

      Better would be: "This email address is already registered. Perhaps you created an account in the past? Recover forgotten username or password"
