Seems to be working fine for me.

Is anyone else experiencing this behaviour?

Got the problem - the cached password was saved in Cyrilic letters, and I was using autocomplete to save the time. With proper US layout everything worked fine.

Sorry - my fault :) (However utf-8 passwords are not working :)
