When trying to change my emailadress via my profile, I enter the new emailaddress, my current password and press Change profile, I get the error:
The following errors occurred when trying to save your profile:
    The password you entered was not correct.

I confirmed by logging out and in that my password is correct. How can I change my profile?

I have this issue as well. I used random characters, and wonder if a '\' or double quotes are messing it up

good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment

It's a SMF bug. It has something to do with special characters:
Code:
// Since the password got modified due to all the $_POST cleaning, lets undo it so we can get the correct password
$_POST['oldpasswrd'] = addslashes(un_htmlspecialchars(stripslashes($_POST['oldpasswrd'])));
Fixing this tangled mess of escaping would be difficult.

If your account email address works, do password recovery and change your password to something without special characters. If not, PM me and I'll change your email address.
