Ouch.  If you're able to go to tty2/3 (shells there), copy
/tmp/*.log onto USB flash or whatever, check that these don't
contain your passwords (at this stage they definitely shouldn't)
and pastebin them or mail offlist to me, maybe we could find the
culprit in this particular case.

I'd also try shifting the case:
