"User name or password are incorrect."
Another account I created is succesful though (Paddy Tester)

Could it be that your password has special characters? Can you try with a simpler (but secure) password and see if it works?

Once the password was changed to leave out the special characters, I could use this account to login on the addons page.
Still, I feel a bit naked now without special characters.
But why does the addons page login not accept special characters in the password as the forum does? (out of sync password policies perhaps)

I don't know - can you post an example password (with special characters) to test out?

Anyway, here is a list of passwords that I tested with the results written in parenthesis
- justsomerandompass (works)
- justs0mer4n0domp4ss (works)
- justsomer_andom-pass (works)
- justs0mer_4nd0m-p4ss (works)
- jusTs0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (works)
- jusTs0méR_4nD0m-p4ss (failed)
- jusTs0meR_4nD0m-pàss (failed)
- jusT&s0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (failed)
- jusTs(0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (failed)
- jusTs'0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (failed)
- jusTs=0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (works)
- jusTs+0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (works)
- jusTs*0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (works)
- jusTs/0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (works)
- jusTs\0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (failed)
- jusTs.0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (works)
- jusTs<0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (failed)
- jusTs>0meR_4nD0m-p4ss (failed)
- _ (underscore)
- - (hyphen)
- = (equal sign)
- + (plus sign)
- / (forward slash)
- . (period or dot)
the password when used to login on the addon page.
My first guess would be that the valid characters are made up off exclusively math operators, though I am not sure about the underscore. Also both parenthesis are missing from that list to complete the set.
Another guess might be that only the typographic characters contained in the basic ASCII set are valid, but
parenthesis and the ampersand being invalid contradict this theory.
