Thanks, that gave me some error messages. Unfortunately, they only make 
me more confused. I get:

Your password must be at least 4 characters; cannot repeat any of the 
your previous 0 passwords. Please type a different password. Type a 
password which meets these requirements in both text boxes.

The password is 8 characters and I type new ones at random and still get 
the same message. To make things more bizarre, I was able to change the 
pass once (from a 8-char lower case to another 8-char lower case).
