[vcf-midatlantic] forum posting problem

I just tried it again and I got the white screen after logging back in.
Reload didn't work.
I wrangled the back button a few times and backed up to the login screen 
This time after I logged back in my composition was restored to how I 
left it.
So I was able to recover, but not the way I had before with that 
"restore" selection.
Of course, if the "keep me logged in" is a solution then everyone would 
be advised to use it.
