I really have no idea why that doesn't work.
Maybe I was being a little too strict on the anti-spam front. I believe I have reset it so that you don't need to do the Captcha for your login if you mess up your password. I originally had it set to 2 failed logins kicked off the captcha. That seems really low but i think it was the same as another setting so I ran with it. I don't claim to completely understand what I'm doing or what all the settings mean.
Try again, maybe?
