sudo passwd

With regards to resolution, I forsee two main problems: the first is that the user should not have to resort to a terminal to fix X (which also applies to the second point). The second is that a great many users will not have a clue what the answers to some of the questions asked are!

One of the points of Freespire is that you are not supposed to be doing this sort of thing - it should all just work!
