New issue 3255 by mrcote: Change Password panel should be disabled or removed if supports_change_password is False

What version are you running?

2.0 beta 3 (dev)

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?


What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Enable an authentication backend that has supports_change_password to False
2. Go to My Account, select Authentication.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

The Change Password panel is displayed and editable. If submitted, results in a 500 (traceback below).

I would expect either the option to be removed or the panel disabled with a definable explanatory message.

What operating system are you using? What browser?

OS X, Firefox Nightly.

Please provide any additional information below.
