Please report any other irregularities here.
I am using the password manager to store the login password for my POP3 email account. Problems arise because my POP3 server only allows a login every 3 minutes and prohibits more frequent logins by rejecting my password (even when it is correct). Whenever this occurs, Password Manager forgets my POP3 password, even though it is still listed in the password list. I have to re-save the password after each failed login to make it work again.
That's a feature, not a bug. It helps out the more common case where a user accidentally typed in the wrong password and of course didn't want that to be saved. If you commited a serious enough violation that your pop3 server rejected you, then why blame mozilla for rejecting you too? ;-)

As a footnote, we also remove saved logins if you fail http authentication and also ftp authentication. The only case that we don't remove a saved login is when the logon is on a form presented by the site. And the only reason we don't remove that login is because in that case we have no way of knowing that the login failed. (Somebody recently filed a bug against password manager for not removing that login as well -- I had to close it as wont-fix because no fix was possible.)
