Description Misza 2008-06-06 18:58:20 UTC
Steps to replicate problem (you need two accounts):
1. Log in with account #1
2. Visit Special:Userlogin again but *without logging out first*
3. Log in with account #2
4. The site will tell you that you that you have successfully logged in as account #2, but...
5. [the problem] ...after visiting another page (any page) the interface again says you're account #1 (likewise on other wikis).
Comment 1 Misza 2008-06-06 19:50:37 UTC
Small update: this only seems to happen when acc. #1 is global while #2 is only local.
Comment 2 Max Semenik 2008-07-26 08:25:44 UTC
This bug is extremely annoying.

Apparently, in CentralAuthHooks.php, function onUserLoginComplete the block

		if (!$centralUser->exists() || !$centralUser->isAttached()) {
			return true;

should nuke global session cookies instead of simply returning.
