Alfresco loses 'admin' username and password

Hi,

first a little introduction…

We are extending our Web Framework (for financial institutions) with support for JCR.
We have decided to give Alfresco an opportunity to be the recommended JCR product.
The Alfresco version used is 3b, and so is also the SDK we downloaded.
The database we use is MySQL and Tomcat is the server.
We made some JSP tags that fetches content from the repository that has been added thru the Alfresco Web Client.

… and then to the point:

By running both (Web Client and our web app) at the same time for some days, we first lost the 'admin' credential (Web Client says: Unable to login - unknown username/password). We had earlier created our own userid, but some days later it also stopped to work with the same error message.

In custom-repository.properties we have defined for both:
   index.recovery.mode=FULL
because the indexes (in C:\Alfresco\alf_data) does not seem to keep in sync otherwise between these two apps.

What could be the reason why these userids got lost?
How could we get them valid again? (deleting C:\Alfresco\alf_data and restarting does not help)
How should we define index.recovery.mode for Web Client and for our web app?

Regards,
Juha
