That's correct.

Unfortunately no.. the rescan will detect that the password 
has changed, and the engine will recheck for remote 
updates, redownloading everything.

There isn't much to do, unfortunately, except maybe to try 
to speed up the process (for example, if the link scan is 
slow due to php or asp pages, using MIME types sould speed 
up the whole thing - or limiting big files)
