When I change the user passwords after upgrade for some users in the systems > permissions > users edit page and try to login, the passwords do not work.
Looked at the database
admin_user and it seems when I change/save the new password that the salt is actually longer than the old passwords. The old salt character(1.7) count was always limited to two characters and the new ones are longer (1.9)
Old passwords work and continue to work but as soon as I change them in the backend, users cannot login.
Also I tried inserting md5 hash+salt passwords and that via SQL query and that seems to work with two character salt but not with longer ones.
I have checked the sessions, etc and the solutions involving sessions do not seem to have any affect on it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
