XF 1.2 1.1.2 to 1.2.1 - can't login to upgrade

Anyone know of a reason why I wouldn't be able to upgrade from 1.1.2 to 1.2.1?

I just get stuck on the login page when trying to upgrade.

The config.php file contains the following:
$config['cookie'] = array(
    'prefix' => 'gbwim_',
    'path' => '/',
    'domain' => '.gbw.im'
Is there some reason why the upgrade process wouldn't accept these settings?

Well, assuming that the domain is correct, I don't see any reason in particular it wouldn't work. If you open up the developer/network tools when logging in, can you see the cookie being set after logging in and then being sent with the subsequent request?

If I am logged into the Admin Control Panel before I upload the 1.2.1 files, I can do the upgrade no problem. It is only if I try to log in as part of the upgrade process if I am not logged in already.

Actually, might just be working now because I've completed the upgrade process. Might still be an issue.

I'll try on a fresh install and see if I can replicate it again.
