umm... i'm trying to update my personal profile, but everytime i go there it's substituting my password for something else. so i change it and try to save changes, but it switches back at some point in the process, and the next screen informs me that the password is incorrect and i can't update the information... so i go back and find the extremely long password in the box again...

anyone know what's going on?

You password is encrypted using oneway encryption (MD5?)
hence it is stored as a longer string.
If my password was "pass3" it would be later displayed as "************************" which would be the MD5 version of your password.
