Scenario that just happened to me: I got a bug report in email, I filed a bug
and told the reporter to go the bug page and add himself to Cc. He tried that,
but since he has no Bugzilla account (and was obviously not logged in) Bugzilla
asked him to login first. The page also offered him the possibility of emailing
him his password if he had forgotten it. 

There was no indication that he might need to create a new account if he did not
have one, nor was there any indication how he could create the account.
I would call this a regression bug rather than an enhancement.  It used to do
this before the password mechanism got changed...

Whoever it is is just blind. The option is there. It's just not very obvious.
The following patch should help.
