Quoting "Daniel F. Kudwien" <news at unleashedmind.com>:

You mean
    // Consider users edited by an administrator as logged in, if they haven't
    // already, so anonymous users can view the profile (if allowed).
    if (empty($array['access']) && empty($account->access) && 
user_access('administer users')) {
      $array['access'] = time();

I don't understand the logic of the comment.  The same logic exists for 
the create.  I'll do some more research.  My awe with the comment is; 
why do I want to destroy the statistical data when I do an 
administrative update just so someone I don't know can view the profile 
if they even have permission to do so?  And the same doesn't happen if 
the user registers himself.  My inclination is to just remove this 
since I consider it silly but I'll do some more research.
