Possible workaround:

1. Log in to a VT (e.g. Ctrl+Alt+F4) and temporarily change your
password to something simpler by running 'passwd'.

2. Change back to the graphics login screen: Alt+F1

3. Log in with your new simpler password.

4. Go to Settings > Language and Region > Input Sources > Manage
Installed Languages

5. In the 'Language Support' dialog drag your preferred language to the top and 
then click:
  Apply System-Wide
  (Use the same language choices for startup and the login screen)

6. Now change your password again to something you prefer. And I hope
the login screen will now accept it.
