I discovered the solution to my problem.  Upon analyzing my config file and comparing it to a default config file, I discovered that my config file was missing the following line right above the <password> line:

I had to:
- downgrade back to 1.21
- backup the working config
- edit the xml config file to add the above line
- restore the altered config back to m0n0wall
- upgrade to 1.23

The upgrade worked like a charm after that.
