Description Iaroslav Vassiliev 2008-06-02 23:29:35 UTC
Steps to reproduce the error:
1) go to page
2) remove domain's cookies from browser's cache or clear the entire cache
3) try to login with global (SUL) account

Login fails, but erroneous message appears: "You are now logged in to Wikipedia as ""." (IP of the user).

Expected result: successful login.

More specifically, "testwiki_session" cookie is erroneously required in this case. That situation causes troubles for users, that disable cookies between logins. It also causes troubles for bots.

Everything is Ok with local accounts.
