Developer password first attempt always incorrect

Posted by Zvoc47
I copypaste my password from Notepad to the developer password form and I think it's incorrect and try with the other and then with the other one and etc..
Now I tried pasting twice in a row and it's true. The first attempt is always incorrect. Why is that?

Seems like you've got some characters in your password that might get mangled when converting UTF8->ASCII or vice versa.

The first time you enter your password, it is hashed on the client-side before sending it. The second time, your password will be sent without hashing it as a fallback for problems like this.

This won't be an issue once the rewrite is finished, so there's no point in fixing it now.
