On the password reset page, if a user enters a non-existant username or
e-mail address, the 'Further instructions have been sent to your e-mail
address.' message is shown

The attached patch fixes this issue. It also removes an extraneous
message shown if no username or password is given or when the
unrecognised username or e-mail address messages are shown.

now it works.

so, it doesn't display a message if the user enters nothing any more,
but i think this is ok, because the login form works in the same way.

however, usually patches are based in drupal's root dir.

i've noticed a similar problem in user_view()
i think that's a php5 specific issue?

in php5  is something like if ($account = user_load(array('uid' =>
$uid, 'status' => 1))) 
always true. perhaps we should fix user_load() instead?
