Nope, but there was some funkiness with the original account creation, 
so I'm guessing there was perhaps cruft from when I used patchwork some 
years ago, that despite the username not reported as used and 
unavailable, may be a case of colliding with a defunct username (not 
password but the username I chose is one I often use).

Will contact the patchwork admin to sort this out, since it seems it 
*ought* to work from what you say below.
