Just reinstalled the game, but the problem remains. What in the nine hells?

Wussup with this, dude?  Make any progress resetting your factions?

               Didn't have any luck. I don't know the basic about the toolset, so I can't change from the inside. I decided to restart the module, so I hope nothing bad happens this time.

Oh, one other thing. On this last game I managed to complete all five main quests before the war against the Valsharess, but some say it's not possible. Could that have influenced somehow on the problem?

Some times you can reset the factions by allowing your PC to die and then respawning it.  But it doesn't always work.  You can use the Chooser or the console to reset them one at a time (IIRC, the procedure is in that henchmen tips thread somewhere).

It's possible if you place bindings in the last 2 areas and refrain from entering the City Core area until all have been completed.  Without teleporting via the bindings, the variable that keeps track of the quest count may not have incremented properly if you were still able to complete all five before the cutscene triggers.

Should you continue to experience "oddities" I would recommend a fresh install and repatching to v1.69.  It's up to you, though.  It may just be the HotU module itself got corrupted during transfer off the disc.  I'd also try playing through WITHOUT Tony K's utility installed just to see if it makes a difference.  It would be a good thing to know, I'm sure.

Bottom line is: Make LOTS of saves.  Don't depend on quicksave or the Autosave to secure your game.  Typically, I will have at least a dozen saves in each module "just in case".

               What I did was, after completing the undead quest and two island quests, I cleared out the beholder caves, but avoided the final room with the queen, and almost completed the mind flayers quest, avoiding the last room. Then I went into town and did my final shopping and then finished both those areas before returning to town for the battle. I didn't have to do any teleporting. Did I break something without knowing it?

A dozen saves per hour, that's what Hip really meant.
Another reason about saving when you feel something big is coming your way: the opportunity to replay it with a different strategy or decision... if not simply overrunning some always possible bug... just like the one you've been facing. Save when you smell troubles ahead... You'd get the "nose", the sensor for it soon enough.  
Also, it could happen on very special occasions, 10 different paths have been written, and to check them all out could be fun, the "Sleeping Man" many True Love comes to my mind as an exemple... 
And some said "cult combats" can be replayed for ever... 
Actually, I'm wrong, as I still have a few in my "basement"... but never replayed them. There are enough great community modules around to avoid the past against the future.
