API - Password confirmation is required

When I try and use the API (v13.0.2) and make a call to create a new user…


it worked for a while but then all of a sudden I am getting this response and I do not now how to get around it.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
        <message>Password confirmation is required</message>

So far the only way I’ve found around this is go to the users page:

and reset the user’s password (even setting it back to the same), and it will reprompt you. And then clear your cookies/sessions and re-invoke from your API.
