Problem changing password

I am using mysql backend with Community Edition 3.2.

One user is having trouble changing his password.  He is also in the administrator group.   when trying to change password from the edit profile page, he supplies an adequate password length (7-8 chars, no funny chars), and hits the OK button and nothing happens.

We tried changing his password on the User edit on the Admin Console, and got a popup message, "Failed to set the password for the new user".   The alfresco.log reported:

12:37:15,406 ERROR [org.alfresco.web.scripts.AbstractRuntime] Exception from executeScript - redirecting to status template error: 10110243 Old password 'oldpw' is a required POST parameter.
org.alfresco.web.scripts.WebScriptException: 10110243 Old password 'oldpw' is a required POST parameter.
