After installation, new build fails to load on 2 linux systems. Both times the installer seemed to complete normally, but authentication fails: 

Note that I can login to mysql database OK. Merlin.users table is empty:

Database changed
mysql> select * from users;
Empty set (0.00 sec)

If I insert credentials by hand, authentication still fails
http://hostname:8080 - gives the tomcat welcome screen
http://hostname:8080/merlin/main gives authentication failures (nothing works)

$ cat merlin.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?><doc><db><![CDATA[merlin]]></db><server><![CDATA[localhost]]></server><port><![CDATA[3306]]></port><user><![CDATA[root]]></user><pass><![CDATA[merlin]]></pass><key><![CDATA[F418DD113AB41B0B]]></key></doc>
