    Default iChain inconsistencies

    i don't know, maybe the subject should be bugzilla bug, i can't tell..

    follow these steps to see the problem

    -log out from the forum
    -check that this page https://bugzilla.novell.com/ does not know who
    you are, if it does click on "Log out"

    ok, now you approach the situation as i do (not logged in with Novell
    or the openSUSE fourms) and:

    1. go to http://forums.opensuse.org/ and log in....now, according to
    what i thought i understood about iChain both Novell and openSUSE has
    me identified, so

    2. go to https://bugzilla.novell.com/ and click on "Enter a bug" and
    up pops a Novell page requiring me to log in

    why?

    A guess:

    As I recall the 'normal' Novell/openSUSE cookie expires (because of stricter security policies) in a time shorter than the special forums' Cookie.

    So I would rate it consistent if the cookie with the stricter security policies would allow the access to a project with not so strict security policies
    but not
    the other way round.

    If the cookie with not so strict security policies (longer time until expiring) would allow the access to a project with the stricter security policies:
    that behavior would undermine the stricter security policies, or not?

    But it is just a guess.

    It's a pretty good guess, as those things go. Pretty much outlines my
    understanding completely.
