Same boat. I’ve had the problem for well over a year now. There was an attempt to see if they were related to my other account problems (being unable to edit my profile or change my Display Name, and my bio no longer inserting on my blog), but no luck. Just sort of… stuck in limbo.
It’s been a bit of a drag for posting, since reformatting from MSWord is… annoying, and I tend to be between computers/find it easier to just log in to teatra.de rather than have to jump to dropbox first.
