It means the kohaadmin password hasn't been site correctly.  I'm not
sure whose fault that is.  Did the password contain any shell special
characters (!$ quotes and a few others)?  If so, it's the installer
being broken.

The installer is currently being rewritten (cue cheers) but I have hit
a problem that I've yet to email to koha-devel (boo!).  While I'm
writing here: does anyone know a complicated (one with extra modules)
perl web application with a particularly good installation?
