Login with "remember me" option isn't affected by Password changed.
1. login with "remember me" option on "one" browser
2. change your password on other browser
3. you can still login with "remember me" on browser "one".
with out type new passwords
I can't reproduce this with either 1.8.2 or current 1.9 dev trunk; the first browser's session becomes
invalid and subsequent page views on it are logged-out.
Lon, please confirm that you're not just seeing cached pages -- go to a new page, try editing, view
a special page such as Special:Version etc.
It's the problem that the cookie data of login info is still validate on first
No matter how I modified my account data in the database, the first browser is
still allow to edit my page..
Thanks for your reply..
Lon, what you say is not true in my testing. Please provide exact directions on how to
reproduce the problem. (The directions you give above result in failure.)
Sorry, I finded that the condition also happened in phpBB system. Maybe it is
just considered as a normal condition.
My condition is that I login to the wiki system with "remember me" option on my
friends' computer and forgot to logout. One day someone edit the wiki page by my
account, but I don't know who did that. Then I changed my password to prevent
this, but it wouldn't work.
So I think that it's a bug.
I don't know if it is considered as a normal condition or not..
Thanks a lot.
What wouldn't work?
As I mentioned above, the steps you describe result in the first browser being logged out as
desired. The problem does no toccur.

Could someone have been editing from your computer, where the new password is
stored? Or from some other computer, where you didn't check "Remember me" but
didn't log out and so remained logged in for a few minutes? Or could you have
Please try to *deliberately* reproduce this, by checking "remember me", changing
your password, and then trying to use the remembered password to log in from the
other computer. Brion did try that, and it didn't work, so probably your
inference as to the cause of the unexplained edits is incorrect.
