You can retrieve the username/password with:

(WADispatcher default entryPoints at: 'config') preferenceAt: #username 
"print it"
(WADispatcher default entryPoints at: 'config') preferenceAt: #password 
"print it"

Just a quick run down...requests to /seaside (by default) are sent to a
WADispatcher (usually the WADispatcher answered by "WADispatcher
default") which keeps a collection of "entry points".  These entry
points are instances of WAApplication stored in a dictionary keyed by
your application path.  So, for example, if you "explore" (menu-click
then pick "explore it") the following expression

WADispatcher default entryPoints

You should see all of your registered applications.  Feel free to
explore the applications.  Now, every seaside application keeps a list
of preferences (set on the config page).  Those preferences can be
retrieved by the #preferenceAt method and change by #preferenceAt:put:. 
So, to change the password you could

(WADispatcher default entryPoints at: 'config') preferenceAt: #password
put: 'MyNewPassword'.

Hope this helps.
