What's up with the log-in thingy?

Not that it's a serious problem, but sometimes when I'm logged in and make a post, it shows up as "guest". I'm not the only one who's had this happen; I've noticed several registered users having to go back and claim a prior post. They swear up and down they were logged in. I'm not sure but I think this might have something to do with the preview button...
I don't mean to gripe, 'tis only a minor annoyance. Other than this, the new forum seems to be holding up great

Yeah, there seems to be a bug in the forum software which also appears on other sites using this software.
For Internet Explorer 6.x users, it helped sometimes to add the domain "mscl.com" to their list of allowed cookie domains: choose Internet Options
on the Tools menu, and then click on the Privacy
tab. Select "Per Site Privacy Actions
" and add "mscl.com" to that list by clicking on Allow
The error appears only on a few configurations, I'm using IExplorer6 & Mozilla and had no problems.
But I will also update this board with a few bug fixes over the next days, maybe that helps too.
