Password Change Problem in Server

Situation #1: Multiple user accounts with multiple passwords. Want to change the passwords slightly.
What happens: If the same password is kept but the case changes on the letters - the server does not seem to update the password. (So abcd1234 -> ABCD1234 does not seem to change.) Instead, I have to change it to something like "a" and then change it back to "1234abcd".
Situation #2: If I change the password for someone but keep the same length, the password doesn't change on the server.
What happens: If I have abcd1234 and I change it to 1234abcd - it does not change. (Fix - same as above.)
Situation #3: If I remove the server from a system and then later on re-install it, the old settings are retained. However, they are not shown (ie: There are no accounts shown). If I try to recreate the accounts the server will sometimes say "That account already exists" even though it is not there - or - the account will have the old password.
Possible Solution: Since I'm not one of the people who are working on this project but since I do debug lots of programs; my best guess is that the server is not actually deleting the account information either when it is uninstalled or when the administrator says to delete the accounts. (I know - kind of obvious! :-) )
Anyway, just upgraded to the latest release earlier this week. (0.9.30).
Almost forgot: When the "X" is clicked on (Windows OS version) this kills the server. Could there be an option to not kill the server and instead just close the dialog? Can't tell you how many times I've accidentally clicked the "X" instead of the "-". :-)
