Started noticing this today. I don't persist data between web sessions.
Steps to reproduce
- Log out; clear all browser-cached data
- Navigate to a question
- Log in using OpenID
- On redirect back to question, the user appears to be logged out (no user toolbar, the First time here? bar is present)
- Navigating to other pages shows user logged in and normal function
- refreshing page has no effect
- Severity: mild irritant
- Reproducibility: intermittent
- Workaround: log out, clear browser data and log in on the start page instead; update: or wait a few minutes & refresh
- Software: Windows XP; Firefox 3.5.5; myopenid
- Reproducability: intermittent
- Uninformed speculation as to cause: host-side caching side-effect; usage triggered?
