Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

I reset an account's password with the Bulk Reset tool. Upon receiving the new message I followed the URL and reset the password. I was unable to log in with this new password.

However the password creation for new accounts DOES work

I believe that's because of the two kinds of user names, there's the TWikiUserName and there's the LoginUserName. I guess that because the LoginUserName is mapped internally to the TWikiUserName and you should be able to use both for logging in but only one of these (probably LoginUserName) is actually stored in .htpasswd the system can't change the password for TWikiUserName. Am I right?

LoginName can be used to log in. WikiName can be used to reset and change passwords: TWiki will map them to Login.
