what is the password for ubuntu 12.04 cloud image?

The ubuntu precise 12.04 cloud image is linked to on the following pages:

If your deployment uses QEMU or KVM, we recommend using the images in qcow2 format. The most recent version of the 64-bit QCOW2 image for Ubuntu 12.04 is precise-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.img.

In one of the, the Note says "In an Ubuntu cloud image, the login account is ubuntu." The other doesn't even give that tip. Neither say what the password is. Googling for this info gives a plethora of suggestions to the password, none of which worked for me.

ssh into the instance is pwd protected, and the vnc console is as well. I cannot reboot and log in as single user, as the reboot causes the vnc to hang. One post suggested that the password would be listed in the console log. This was not the case for me with this image (others such as cirros centos did this).
