Password manually entered during setup is stored in the database incorrectly

Password manually entered during setup is stored in the database incorrectly. This causes inability to login at first login as admin, requiring tweaking the wp_users table manually.
Environment: WP 3.5.2, Windows Vista Business 32-bit, apache 2.2, php 5.2.17, mysql.EXE Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.18, for Win32 (ia32).
Steps to reproduce: run install.php, enter strong password for admin, see it matching (green "Strong"), proceed. You will get to the login page. Try entering the password and see that it fails.
After manually tweaking the wp_users table using md5sum as described in one of the support posts to reset the password, the problem is gone.
This makes an unpleasant impression for a first-time user that WP does not work from day 1.
