Description James Bennett 2007-01-19 16:55:10 EST
A bug in Django's AuthenticationMiddleware was discovered and patched after the 0.95 release; this bug 
can cause apparent "caching" of the value of request.user between requests, possibly resulting in 
inappropriate access when a user is perceived to be "logged in" as someone else.

This was fixed in revision 3754 of Django trunk[1], and that changeset applies cleanly to stock Django

Django 0.95.1 has been built on the build servers and awaits signing
