Firstly, you need to update to RC8.

The login system uses cookies and session ids to keep track of sessions. If a cookie cannot be set, the session id is appended to the URL. Certain software like Google web accelerator can interfere with the login system. Also, some browsers (AOL for example) that do not handle cookies properly can cause problems.

That's assuming the cookie settings in the administration panel are set correctly.

Right, and it will work perfectly on most setups.

I have used (public) computers in the past where sessions simply would not hold. In other words, there is some software running that causes a problem. For instance, if phpBB is able to set a cookie, but then the browser drops the cookie for some reason, you will be logged out.
