Default Login Controls and Recover Password

I have setup my app to use forms authentication, the canned db schema, and the new 2.0 login controls. Everything was working fine, until I got to messing with the Login Change Password control. I think I may have changed my own password, and I don't know to what. I am sure I could delete the user and setup a new admin user, but it got me to thinking how to recover a password from the encrypted field in the db...?
Although some docs I have read say to go to ASP.NET Configuration under the website menu and "Edit User"...that screen does not show me the password, nor does it allow me to change the password.

So, how can I retrieve a password from the db?
