 It looks like the plugin isn't hooking into enough places. It'll probably
 have to hook into 'check_password' or 'authenticate' filters.

 Try using ` wp_authenticate($username, $password);` directly in code,
 you'll probably find it fail there too.

 Report it to the plugin author, Please feel free to direct the plugin
 author to this ticket to re-open it if they have a reason to believe that
 there's a bug in core.
