Did you set the password by MD5 hash in typo3conf/localconf.php? I had 
the issue a few days ago where on line 5 is

$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['installToolPassword']= 'yourhashhere';

and again line number 19 is

$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['BE']['installToolPassword']= 'yourhashhere';	// 
Modified or inserted by TYPO3 Install Tool.

and the second overrides the first. Hope that helps.
