I've just upgraded to 2.0.RC primarily to use the new reconfirmable logic for changing an email. However, when I sign up as a new user, the confirm! method in Confirmable fails to save the newly confirmed user with validation messages about the lack of a password. Looking at the code: (line 47 of confirmable.rb)

if self.class.reconfirmable
  @bypass_postpone = true
  self.email = unconfirmed_email if unconfirmed_email.present?
  self.unconfirmed_email = nil
  save(:validate => false)

the reconfirmable path is validating the new user, whereas the non-reconfirmable path is not. That appears to be causing the validation error. Is it intentional that the validation is required for the reconfirmable path? As far as I can tell there is no way that the password is going to validate as we don't have the password attribute to validate on at that stage.

I may be missing something, but should this not call save(:validate => false) in both instances?

Yeah, we should have that in both instances. :) Thanks for reporting and trying Devise 2.0.0.RC out. I will push a fix shortly, so you can run from Devise git master if you want.

Actually, we need to validate the e-mail uniqueness. :( So I am caught between a rock and hard place.
