This sounds like a problem with PAM configuration.  I've definitely had
PAM ask for my password multiple times when I set up things like
pam_mount and so on.  PAM is probably also responsible for the immediate
logout.  The /etc/pam.d/common-* files are the most likely culprits.
(You may also have an /etc/pam.d/login file, but that usually just links
to the common-* files.)

Congratualations on getting this far!  You're nearly there.
