    That may just be a bug. Just out of curiosity I did a google search on the 1st name : carlosponti is/was a memeber re: http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/ptopic56423.html

    So this may just be a login glitch

    I get the impression that a lot of information is kept in the database rather than just wiht cookies, so maybe that went a bit skew-ways. Always worth the mention, in case it is a bug I guess.

    You may want to let jasonlambert know about this in case something funky is going on.
