Fixed Setup Administrator Password

    When setting up the administrator account on the first install, I was able to hit "create administrator" without entering a password. There's no validation to ensure that a password has been entered.

    When you try to log in with the username only, as expected, it says you need a password.

    Yeah, this is a weird one, you can't proceed without entering username or email, but it doesn't require a password. hehe

    Strictly speaking, this is by design, as we allow accounts with empty passwords (whereas an account is invalid without username and email), which can be useful in a test installation, but I'm going to take a quick look to see if it would be relatively easy to force a password to be entered.

    Behaviour changed now - the initial administrator must now have a password.
