Summary16587: Getting a false "Password warning" when changing the password of another survey administrator

When using the following link: Configuration > Manage survey administrators (User control) > Edit this user to change the password of an existing user, the password gets changed successfully but I get the pop-up message as shown attached.

The error message suggests I'm still using the "default password ('password')" although neither I as the super admin nor the new password for the other user is set to 'password'.

Steps To Reproduce

Go to Configuration > Manage survey administrators (User control) > Edit this user

Enter and save a new password for another user (not self), even when using a strong password (> 8 random characters including !#$ etc.)
