    Hi David,
    I installed your plugin on a test site to evaluate - initially really VERY impressed. but now i can't login. I had a user account (editor) which I purposely tried hacking with 11 attempts. Great that I got email and asked to reset my password. Then things didn't do so well.

    I was told I had 20 grace minutes. I reset the password and was told it wasn't strong enough so i should login using this password and then change it in the user settings. but it would not except my new login.
    So I thought I'd login with my admin account. but it instantly refused entry and said i should reset my password. and here I am now not able to get into the site.
    Is there an IP based setting or something refusing my admin access?
    Any thought would be great.
    i noticed you adivised another user to provide error messages - where would i find these?

    thanks.

    Hi Son123:

    I did find that some behaviors had inadvertently changed, introducing a "Catch 22" situation. I just released version 0.9.0 to fix the problem. Now, when users choose an insecure password during the reset process, they can pick a better password right on the spot.

    Please upgrade and let me know if there are any more problems. Sorry for the inconvenience.
