I suspect you changed the password and then logged in with the new
password and then tried the old password, but you already had the
cookie from the successful login so the old password appeared to work.

Try the old password in a brand new browser session.

The other possibility is that the old password is the site password set
by bin/mmsitepass. Did you change that too?
