Issue: Issuing the reset-user-password completes, but logging in to the Dashboard doesn't prompt for user's new password. Consequently locks user out of Dashboard.
I have been using a new install of Amahi for several days with great success. Unfortunately, I forgot my admin users password. I performed the reset-user-password command and tried to log in the dashboard but there is no prompt to create a new password. I still have access to the box through putty with the root user, as well as the dashboard with another non admin user.
The install is from the 5.4 Express CD. What can I do to help?

an immediate work around is to run it with -u argument to make the user not an admin
/var/hda/platform/html/script/reset-user-password -u username
admin password resets are actually not done unless there are no admins in the system.
it's impossible to remove all admins with the UI, so one must use this command on at least the last admin.
fix coming up.
