bBlog Global Authentication Problem...

Over at the bBlog forums, someone was trying to use multiple bBlog installations on a single domain, and was experiencing authentication problems. The problem was the PHP Session information simply stored the state that the user was logged in, but not where or who. As such, as soon as the user went to another blog installation, the user was believed to he logged in.

I looked into the problem, and I have a fix. It is probably not the most glamourous one, but it resolves the issue. You can snag it here.

There also seems to be some issue when you login as the wrong user, and then login as the correct user. When you do this, you get a completely blank page, without much to say about it. The above file also contains a fix for that too.
