The 'Generate password' tool in the 'Add User' page doesn't always generate a password with numeric characters, even when it is a (configured) requirement for passwords.

    The cause of this issue is that the .js script that handles password generation does not have any access to the settings on the server for acceptable passwords. I have updated the script so it should always create 'secure' passwords that contain at least on number in a random position.

    You can use the patch file below or get the latest version of /util/javascript/bitweaver.js from cvs. The generate option will now always put numbers in the password.

    Use winmerge to apply the patch to your existing file.
