Looking at the forum code, in ForumMemberProfile.php there are the methods RegistrationForm() and doregister().

I'm wondering what this is doing in the RegistrationForm() method:

$member = new Member();
$form->loadDataFrom($member);

Not sure what it does and why it is there... Imean I know what the first line does, but the member seems to be created in the doregister()-method anyway, so I can't understand why it is here and why loadDataFrom is needed, and what it is doing...?

Edit:
And another question.. sorry :-) :
a few times in the doregister-method I see

Director::redirectBack();
die;

But sometimes the 'die;' isn't there at all. Neither is 'die' used in the forms tutorial.
When using this die-function in my form in the same way as in the ForumMemberProfile the redirectback doesn't seem to work either... it just dies before getting the chance to redirect.

Thanks.
