Sounds like a cookie problem, which is discussed in the FAQ.

I'm not sure how the use of frames will affect this issue.  Outside 
of frames, this kind of problem is typically because of a cookie 
problem, or perhaps an error in the way that URL rewriting is done on 
the web server.  But how frames plays in that mix, I have no idea.
