PR 751
proposes setting a random pasword in that scenario, and showing it once.
that is a more secure method thatn setting a blank password.

Thanks for the pointer Carlos. I did search the tracker for something similar, but did not think of checking for PR's.

I fully agree that getting rid of this empty password thing is something that needs to be added to the TODO LIST, but it's outside the scope of this issue.

Allow password reset when it is blank

Commit f4137abe0c6e28ffd5a82fbe455b40d598109a25 added HTML5 'required'
attribute to mandatory fields, including the Current Password on Edit
Account page.

Since the password can be blank (e.g. when $g_enable_email_notification
is OFF), this prevents the users from resetting their password.

This removes the mandatory attribute when the password is blank.
