Websites seem to continuously lose track of whether I'm logged in.

I login (say, here in the bugs web), enter a report, and find that I'm logged out.

Or ask to see my open bugs & it shows me guest's.

Although it's really annoying here - if it happened at a customer, it would be a serious distraction/productivity loss. (It doesn't happen on my site - but then I use X.509 authentication.)

In any case, it's quite unprofessional, so I'm leaving the priority as Normal.

FWIW, this seems to be true with the fork's sites too.
