Can you try enabling Setup - Video - Playback - 5/8 Always Prompt For
Initial Group Filter and try again.

It appears this option is causing the problem as if I turn it off the
password works fine, turn if on and the password does not work.

I am using OpenGL, does not appear to be any UTF8 warnings in the log,
Mythbuntu theme, 0.26fixes and wireless keyboard.
