       Body:
Has this been fixed by the latest CVS? I think this is still a problem with JS1.6-dev.

        Key: JS1-516
    Summary: UserUpdateAction re-encrypts encrypted password when secure.passwords=true
       Type: Bug

     Status: Unassigned

Description:
UserUpdateAction re-encrypts encrypted password when secure.passwords=true

Thus making the edit user capability unusable unless the purpose was to also reset the password.

I've been throwing around something simple, such as:

services.JetspeedSecurity.secure.passwords.allowblank=true|false

UserUpdateAction.doUpdate: Null password is ok, depending on 
if secure.passwords=true {
  if (password != null) {
    forcePassword(user,password)
  } else {
    if secure.passwords.allowblank {
      if (unsetpassword) {
        forcePassword(user,"")
      }
    } else {
      // Skip, no changes
    }
  }
}


Modify user-form.vm, add a checkbox next to password (if secure.passwords.allowblank=true)
eg, Unset Password
