Running a updated MAIN checkout.

I fill the password after configure's first step (all options), and when I return to modify some other options, I am told that I didn't set a password and need to do so. Then I check lib/LocalSite.cfg and this is what is there:

$TWiki::cfg{SMTP}{Password} = '';

Did you set the password the right place?

There is the password entry field at the top and TWO password setting fields below. I have also been tricked into only providing a password at the top.

configure should not show the password field above when a password is not yet defined. People should be forced to entering a password the first time.

No feedback forthcoming, so closing no action.
