I have defined a new password for one of my two accounts on the 2018 MacBook Pro and it appears that it just wont work for the regular login into the account. (while TouchID still works well). The same password however works well once I am logged in and like to enter "Settings/Passwords" or change locked properties of a file or folder in Finder.

At the same time the same new password is rejected if I like to get rid of it and define a new in "Settings/Touch ID & Passwords".

What is causing this issue and how can I solve it? I am afraid at a certain point I will loose access to my account.
