This isn't a big enough issue to warrant my going overboard to solve it.

Ok, so how do I force the different mediawiki installs to use separate
cookies, to ensure that they don't clobber oneanother?

It does appear to me that something fishy is going on.. because
although I don't clear my cookies and have mw remember my password..
sometimes I have to re-log in.

It's not consistant.. so I'm still confused as to what's going on.
