Hmm, it works here. Could you try:

    cpasswd -h <name-of-SCM>

Otherwise change the password using `au cp', you have to give a
system:administrator username and password and then it is possible to
change another user's password without having to know the old one.
(maybe the old password for the user `coda' is not exactly what you
expected it to be??)
