I came across this before, and I do not mind (because I clear the field)
But my users complain that they can not understand "my account" behavior, going to my account automatically fills the first field
and they think they are "committed" to change your password, they receive an error message that the passwords do not match
I researched the subject and the phenomenon (it's not a bug that feature...) happens when the user allow the browser to remember his password, this happens to me when i used FireFox and chrome (did not checked in IE, but I expect it to happen there too)
and here is a drupal solution,

i did not check it but i guess this solves the problem
The Funny / Sad thing is that there is no way to get over it but by changing the core code
Did you encountered this phenomenon?
How do you think this problem can be solved ?
