I'm confused by the "Confirm Password Change" dialog.  When I set up
the new user and click "Save", I'm prompted with a pop-up dialog to
"Please confirm which user you are changing the password for".  In the
list is:


Neither of those two choices are my new user.  So I clicked the <> and
pushed OK.  Amazing, now the new user can login, logout, login again.

So I went into the admin interface again, changed the password for
ProblemUserName, answered the dialog.  This time my password has no
special characters, and ProblemUserName can now login.  When I change
the password back to the original (contains an = sign).  I get the DBI
connect failure error message.
