Changing User Permissions in 2.19 requires retyping of confirmation password - possible bug

Hi Devs,

We are seeing on 2.19 build revision strange behaviour when allocating new user role or changing Orgunitallocations for a user > Before saving you have to retype the password in the “retype password” field before you are able to save the changed User record.

Is this a bug or intentional functionality change which would be strange as the person who makes this change does not know the users password and it is not ideal to reset the users password just because you change permissions?
