Live Writer: Keeps asking for login when posting to wordpress (4 posts)

    Hi, I use windows live writer to post to my blog. This worked fine and nothing was changed (upgrade etc). However, now, when I hit the publish butten, the login box for the blog appears (which is fine) and I type in my password as usual. But this login box keeps coming back asking for the password. Over and over agin. Nothing is posted.
    Yes, I do know my password and I can login to wordpress.org admin site with this login/password.
    What can be the reason for this? Again, worked one day, quit working the other day. No settings were changed.
    Thanks!

    What happens if you post normally (without live writer)?

    That works just fine, with the same username/password. It's only the live writer that keeps askig. But also nothing like 'wrong password' or so. It's the normal "WordPress 2.2+" login box that keeps coming back in live writer...

    It does not even make a difference whether I put in the correct or 'any' password. It just keeps asking.
    Since I can login and post on wordpress.org just as normal, it obviously has to do with live writer and/or the interface to wordpress.
    Any help is appreciated, I don't have an idea where to look...
    Thanks!
