BUG REPORT: Login Screen Appears When Already Logged In

GregChapman
Hi Franklin,

This bug probably started around two years ago and occurs from time to time in all the embedded forums I operate. I report it now as yet another user is encountering it.

Nabble sometimes presents a login screen when a user is already logged in. When it occurs you do not see the login and register links, but the username of the person logged in.

A workaround is simply to navigate away from the screen with a click/tap on the forum name link at the top left.

However, most newcomers don't realise they have encountered a bug and proceed to attempt to login a number of times and it is annoying for those following permalinks in emails to pages several sub-forums down in the structure as they are utterly broken by the bug.

Unfortunately, I have never been able identify what sets it off and it is relatively rare (I might see it once in a couple of months across the whole range of Nabble forums I maintain) so I have not formally reported it before now, although I have posted the work around to those presenting it on this forum.
Just a Volunteer Nabble Helper - because the nice folk at Nabble have helped me!

I'm seeing two different scenarios that look exactly the same, meaning I get a log-in option but my name is showing in the upper right. In one of those scenarios I am apparently already logged in as I can click on the link to my forum up top and it will take me there, or I can click on my name and then go to my posts.

The other scenario looks exactly the same as my name is still showing as if I'm logged in.  However, if I click on the link to my forum it comes right back to that page with the log-in.  And, if I click on my name and then my posts it plays like it is showing my posts but it says I don't have the privileges needed to see them.  So, apparently in this scenario I am not logged in.

This is very confusing to my users as we are all absolute newbies to Nabble.  And we are seeing it frequently when clicking on links sent to us via email, which means we can't get directly to the post to which we are trying to respond.  In other words, once that log-in request comes up you are not going where you wanted to go and now have to go find the thread and post to which you wanted to respond.  Help, please!

I need to be able to reproduce this.  I registered on your forum.  Please give me some steps to follow to try to reproduce this.  And which browser should I use?
