Subject No password at start of new password enabled VM
Date Mon, 04 Mar 2013 19:35:05 GMT
There is no return of random set password at start of password enabled virtual machine, 
so user can not login. VM must be stopped and password restarted again in order to get actual

This part of code is in charge of it..seems not to working well, indeed there is no args.password
value again. 

file ./ui/scripts/instances.js 

actions: { 
start: { 
label: 'label.action.start.instance' , 
complete: function(args) { 
if(args.password != null) { 
alert('Password of the VM is ' + args.password); 
return 'label.action.start.instance';
