Can't log in as administrator under local site

I have a production site that I have copied to a test server for off-line development.  I have exported the drupal database from the production box and imported into the local site (running on a virtual host under Apache 2.2).  I have also copied the entire drupal subdir with sites/.* to the local machine.

Now, the site looks to be fully functional except that I can login.  I'll enter the admin login/password, and it just brings me back to the main page.

I have delete the entries from the sessions and cache tablles but am still having the problems.  Any help regarding this will be appreciated.
