That's actually intentional. The test cookie is set on the load of the
wp-login.php screen. When you log in, it checks for the existence of
that test cookie and won't log you in without it.

This is to give better feedback than before, for login attempts where
cookies were disabled, but the username and password given was
correct. See http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/24961 .

Now, obviously, if you clear the cookies between loading the login
page and logging in, then you're going to have problems, because it's
testing for the existence of the cookie it just set on the login
