For those who managed to sneak an early purchase of an Intel X25-M G2 series SSD, there is now a firmware update available for your downloading pleasure.  Please ensure you update prior to updating or removing any BIOS HDD password you might have set since your purchase.  Once updated, you are free to do whatever you wish with said password (except forget it, of course).  This update should only address the password bug, and should have no impact on the performance we saw in our review.
