Comment (by flashman):

 I've done more research, and the problem seems to be that wp-login.php
 isn't setting cookies properly. On the server where 2.3 is working, I
 receive wordpress_test_cookie as soon as I load up wp-login.php... this
 doesn't happen with the broken server.

 wp-login.php CAN set the following cookie if it's placed on line 1:

 <?php setcookie('my_test_cookie', '',0, '/', '.mydomain.org.au'); ?>

 ...but NOT if it's placed below
 'require( dirname(__FILE__) . '/wp-config.php' );'

 I'm beginning to think it's an incompatibility between my server setup and
 Wordpress where cookies are concerned. Doesn't work with any browsers I've
 tried, or with previous versions of Wordpress.
