It makes sure someone doesn't walk up to your PC and do something nasty 
when you're getting coffee. :-) Mind you, there are worse things they 
could do.  It also makes sure you don't accidentally change someone's 
password when updating their profile.

It's probably only checking your internal password, which may or may not 
be set.
