Comment (by johnbillion):

 Brain dump:

 This behaviour is confusing for several reasons:

 * Users may not be aware of the relationship between a site and its "main"
 site. They may not be aware of the existence or role of multisite at all.
 * The main site may not use the same language as the site the user is
 trying to log in to. The user may not understand the language of the main
 site, meaning they're unable to follow the password reset instructions.
 * After resetting their password, they're sent to the admin area for the
 main site, which was not probably not their original destination.

 When the user does reset their password, they're subsequently sent an
 email notification that they've reset their password for the main site.
 There's no mention of the site that they were attempting to log in to.

 It looks like there are quite a few considerations that need to be thought
 about that relate to how WordPress deals with sites and how it
 communicates to the user about sites or the main site.
