Cisco ASA: Error When Password Reset On IPS Module - "Authentication token manipulation error"

This error was really aggravating to me.  Mainly because it was self inflicted.  What does the error message "Authentication token manipulation error" mean?  Here is what it means, per Cisco:

In order to solve this issue, use default password (cisco) two times and then change the password from the config mode. The IDS requires the default password to be entered twice.

I did the above and it works.  I guess I wasn't paying attention.  
Enter current password:cisco
Enter new password: *** 
Re-enter new password: ***
