Hi Rob,

It's definitely a problem with Session State. If you sneak a peek at the
bug.aspx page, you'll notice that Aardvark checks the userid stored in the
session object to determine if you're logged on. If it's not finding that,
it checks for a cookie. Failing that, you're asked to log on.

Does it still happen if you set Aardvark to log you on automatically?

Regards,
