I wonder if these could be bugs in the new UI? Obviously some significant changes there and
something might have crept through. You could always point 1.4-M2 or earlier at the users
database and see if it acts as expected... or file a bug regardless.

I'd add the deployment user to the unlockable accounts, which will avoid the issue of password
change over time (but not help with the forced password change).
