Hi webmaster,

I lost password for user "joel", but the procedure "Forgot your password?" at fails with this message :

Trac Error The password file could not be updated. Trac requires read and write access to both the password file and its parent directory.

I get the email entitled "Trac reset password for user: joel", but the connection with the new password does not work :

Error Invalid username or password

For the moment, I have closed the access for new users to this trac instance as I was getting too much spam (around 10 new fake users per day). Will need to find a way to avoid this, in the mean time, I can work with you off line for that (reopening to give you the time to make your modification e.g.). contact me privately when you're ready.

This poblem seems to be better handled with this new version of trac. Please feel free to report if that's not the case.
