The new chars !@#$%&*() included in WP 2.5.1 in function wp_generate_password() are being stripped out by function reset_password() by this $key = preg_replace('/[a-z0-9]/i', , $key); and as a result it gives an invalid key message when user tries to reset the password.

Indeed. It won't use those special characters anymore.

BTW, Denis-de-Bernardy: if you just do # and then the ticket number, it'll automatically link it as well as cross it out if it's been closed. ;)

Like so: #6842
