{edit}
I was chasing the wrong rabbit.

Using Ubuntu 10.4 and 10.10:

Problem:

Could not login to D2L (Desire 2 Learn)
Entering the correct un/pw would not allow entry, it would just ask for the un/pw again.
Entering the wrong un/pw would pop-up a java window saying you're wrong, and redirect to a different (pseudo help) page.

If your university/school has a one-stop with a link to login to D2L, Clear your cookies at the D2L login page and it'll let you right on in.
Logging out of one-stop isn't enough, there is a cookie crumb interfering. Or simply bookmark the D2L page and totally avoid the one-stop page.
This might just be a local thing with my University. YMMV

This doesn't seem to bother win7 at all.
