Description Bill Greene 2003-04-11 09:22:59 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
After downloading a package, I hit the back button to download additional 
components (e.g., glibc-common and glibc, or the multiple packages for 
Samba).  I am asked to log in again.  After logging in, I am on the correct 
page.  This appears to only happen if I do a download -- if I just look at the 
page, then hit back, it works correctly.  I am using IE 6.0 on XP 
Professional.  Cookies, JavaScript, etc., are all on.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Link from RHN errata alert e-mail; log in and get details page.
2. Click on Packages link, then select a specific RPM.
3. On the RPM page, click the download link.  The package downloads.
4. Click the browser "Back" button.

Actual Results:  I am on the "Please Sign In" page.  The URL is correct.  Once 
I log in, I am on the correct page (i.e., the Packages page).

Expected Results:  I would be on the Packages page without having to sign in
