Here is a bug report I received for the debian b2evolution package.
What do you guys think ?
I plan to have version 1.6 uploaded this week or so. Is the issue solved in
this version ? Have you planned to do something about that ?
Keep me updated !

Upstreams #1 FAQ is because they have some stupid logic in place to
derive the "cookie domain" from the hostname.
This should either be made a proper configuration variable, or a logic
that can handle blogs reachable via different domain names (and
hostnames!) properly should be put into place...
Not crappy code like this (b2evolution/conf/_advanced.php):
$cookie_domain = ($basehost == 'localhost') ? '' : '.'. $basehost;
Which is totally unneccessary crap code, that hoses up local network
Just using the empty string or basehost directly works way better.
Their FAQ also displays a certain ignorance about the whole issue,
especially the solution "just use 'localhost' if you do a local test
installation" - and what if I have more than one computer locally, and
my DSL router sets up some broken pseudo-DNS for them?
