I think I've found a bug in the admin's Change Password form. Here's the
call to render the template from the user_change_password function in

return render_to_response('admin/auth/user/change_password.html', {

'title': _('Change password: %s') % escape(user.username),
'form': form,
'is_popup': request.REQUEST.has_key('_popup'),
'add': True,
'change': False,
'has_delete_permission': False,
'has_change_permission': True,
'has_absolute_url': False,
'first_form_field_id': 'id_password1',
'opts': User._meta,
'original': user,
'show_save': True,

}, context_instance=template.RequestContext(request))

And here's the form action from

<form action="{{ form_url }}" method="post"
id="{{ opts.module_name }}_form">

As you can see, the action is specified as form_url, but this is never
set in the view. I assume "" would work, but I have
TEMPLATE_STRING_IF_INVALID set to something non-null, and get a whopper
of an error there.

I'm guessing the fix is something really simple ({{ form.url }} instead
of {{ form_url }} or just a dot instead of a variable), but I don't have
enough of a handle to say exactly what it should be.
