I tried to impersonate you by changing your password and login using
your account - it works :|

I noticed though that there are several open sessions from the 12
september, that are very close in time, but from different IPs. Savane
logs you off when your IP address changes significantly.

The last thing I can think of is the date - if your system clock is
out of date, the session cookie may expire right after being set.

If you still cannot find a solution, please send me the content of
your Savannah cookies at address@hidden
