    I downloaded from the /nightly/ installation is just greeat!. But I forgot to change the random password. So, I tried to use the "Lost Password". I put the "admin" login, and I got this message: Sorry, that user does not seem to exist in our database. Perhaps you have the wrong username?
    Mmm... I check via PhpMyAdmin to find the password, and I can log in. Bug?

    Same here, Exactly the same. I was so excited that I got it up and running so I forgot to change the default password. So after cple hours of hacking and modifying I cleared my cookies in my FireFox and...well you know the rest.
    What now?
    I think I will try to run and install script again

    To use the lost password feature you must have an email in the database. You can manually edit the database and put your email in there if you need to reset your password before you've actually logged in.
