Just for the record,
I worked around this issue. Since there has been no indication what so 
ever, where this went wrong (since no log was registered), I manually 
created the user in system_auth.users and system_auth.credentials. After 
switching to PasswordAuthenticator, I could successfully log into cqlsh 
and cassandra-cli.
