U4-8723 - Remove the AllowManuallyChangingPassword flag for users/members - this used to be for backwards compat reasons only

This setting AllowManuallyChangingPassword for membership providers is there for old legacy backwards compat reasons and still today it is true by default. For security reasons this should be false which forces a user to enter their existing password before they can change it (including admins).

We will remove this setting in v8 so passwords can only be changed by having known the previous password or by resetting it.
