I try your code (ic 4.9.8) but the results are the same.

   [cgi name=mv_username set='[cgi username]']
   [cgi name=mv_password set='[cgi pw]']
   [userdb function=login]


[userdb function="login" username="[cgi username]" password="[cgi pw]" 

make correct user login.
In both ways [data session username] display logged user and [data 
session logged_in] is 1 but i cannot browse members_only pages.
At this point i think that the problem is not the way to do login but my 
code that test session and scratch vars.

Now my bug has short life :-)
