[Moin-user] Problem with being logged out in some cases....

That makes sense and I'm happy to tell the users that. My problem is
that logging in by hostname.motive.com is broken (while logging in by
"hostname"--i.e. not fully qualified--works). If you do a search using
our intranet's search appliance, tho, the link in the hit takes you to

The problem appears to be that there's some kind of problem with another
cookie from somewhere on our intranet. If you delete all your cookies,
then you can again log in with hostname.motive.com for a while. I know
little about cookies, however, so I'm at a loss as to how to
troubleshoot. I guess I'd have to delete one cookie at a time from a
browser that's having problems until the problem goes away--then I'd
know which cookie was causing the problem anyway.
