(In [8159]) Fixed #8042 -- Modified the password reset form so that the email field length matches the User model. Thanks to Bob Thomas <bthomas@…> for the report.

Why 75 and why is it defined in two different places? Should this at least be made a constant for easy patching. Someone out there must have an email address longer than 75 characters. It would be RFC legal (AFAIK...)
