Unexpected logout after a few clicks (Alfresco 2.0 Preview)

I tried to install the Alfresco 2.0 Preview (zip version as well as bundled windows installer), but face a rather strange problem:

After clicking through a couple of pages (1 .. 4), I get directly redirected to the login page. Trying to relogin with admin:admin, I get a "Unable to login - unknown username/password." message.

Then, if I try to go back to the main url (http://localhost:8080/alfresco/), I get following exception:

I'm using the Jan 19. release, in the zip archive version with MySQL, in the  installer version HSQL.

I'm wondering if somebody else experienced this problem or could give me some hints how to fix it.

Thanks a lot,

Michael

Update: Similar behaviour with the linux alfresco 2.0 preview installer on a different machine, but far less often.
