  Hang in change password dialog

Status in gnome-control-center package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The change password dialog can hang in certain situations.

  To reproduce:
  1) Launch system settings
  2) Open the "User accounts" control panel
  3) Click the password 'dots' to open the "Changing password" dialog
  4) Enter the current password, and enter a password that the system thinks is 
weak, like 'ubuntu'
  5) Press the 'change' button'.  A dialog should appear that says, "The new 
password is too simple. Please choose another password.". Close the dialog.
  6) In the change password dialog, re-enter the weak password from step 4
  7) Press the change button

  Expected results:
  Either the system accepts the new password, or the "The new password is too 
simple" dialog from step 5 appears.

  Actual results:
  The "Changing password" dialog is greyed out and the cursor changes to the 
spinning "please wait" cursor. The password is not changed.

  This is 100% reproducible for me. May be related to
