I noticed that a single mistyped password at login triggers a CAPTCHA, with a dummy login in between:
- login with wrong password
- login form is displayed again, enter correct password this time
- login form is displayed again, with CAPTCHA, enter correct password again
- finally successful login

Isn't that too much of "paranoia"?
Could at least the CAPTCHA be displayed on the second attempt to avoid a third run?

I believe you are mistaking programmed paranoia and just plain bugginess. It's been doing this to me for years. FYI, if you ever get a failed login, don't even bother at the first CAPCHA login request, it *NEVER* goes through for me. The second one always works.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.
