You are looking the wrong place for the errors. Most of the time when
errors are encountered, they are redirected. In the process of wp-login,
you'll want to look in either wp_signon() (pluggable.php??), or
wp_safe_redirect() for a filter of some kind, or login_header() for a
filter. If none exist, then I guess the WordPress source doesn't want to
you see the errors.

There are no other actions or hooks that reference the errors, so I
suppose you are SOL in WordPress 2.5. You can lobby for them to add an
action that references the errors before the redirect.
