Comment 1 David Lawrence 2004-05-19 16:50:31 EDT
Bugzilla login sessions are set to expire something like 30 years from
now so it is not an expiration issue. It very well can be a cookie
problem with the browser you are using. Some things to look for:

1. Make sure cookie support is enabled globally or specifically to
accept cookies from bugzilla.redhat.com.

2. If no 2 is not issue, remove all cookies from bugzilla.redhat.com
using your browsers cookie manager, and try to relogin. 

3. Make sure your IP address is not changing frequently such as dhcp
leases running out or your ISP is using revolving gateways/firewalls.

Please let me know if any of these help.
