Description Paul Robinson 2005-05-02 18:51:26 UTC
In some cases, even though I have not logged out nor changed IP addresses, an
attempt to log in with my e-mail address and my password brings up the red
banner indicating it's wrong, and yet logging in from a different browser window
with the same information does work, but attempting to log in again with the
exact same information in the other window (whose status shows I'm not logged
in) fails.  It keeps telling me the username or password is incorrect, and still
seems to think I am not logged in in that window and won't let me log in.

After "logging in" all seems fine; if you click on "preferences", "my bugs", "my
votes" you are logged out. I could not see any textual hint about enableing
cookies. This is a problem if cookies have been denied in the past and this was
