Every so often I see the password field pop up when a new user requires manual approval to join my site. What does this mean?

We display a list of the changes a user has made since they registered.

It literally just means they have changed their password.

The main idea behind this is that occasionally spam users will change other fields like signatures and custom fields and sometimes these will clearly be spammers, so it can help when making the decision to approve or reject a user.
