Well, just explaining :)

I modified the system to be flexible, to be able to be used for
different conferences' needs - I think you entered at some point the
account data edition screen (you did, didn't you?). We don't handle
the password at that point, but as it was blank, sometimes(?) it just
passed as a null value. Which, of course, it should not.

Anyway, if it happens again, I'll keep searching.
