Description

I frequently get this question from my customers (like... once per week): How do I recover my password?

As far as I can tell, the password reminder works. So it's a UI issue.

The attached patch will add the password reminder link to the error message when the user fails to log in.

Tested the "9442-better.diff" against 10937 with IE and Opera. Looks fine to me and is much more obvious UI-wise.
