I've had issues like this when I was still using Skype. Very hard to
trace, but I had the feeling that a login gets bound to a client-id or
client version and that failed attempts to log in mark a
client-id/client version invalid. When this happened to me, I used the
website password reset feature and it would then let me sign on with the
new client.

It's a shot in the dark, but worth testing.
