Everytime I edit my profile it logs me out even though I have it set to keep me logged in.  Is this normal for this version of SMF?

I just replicated this issue on my account as well, it appears that editing your profile does seem to log you out for some reason. I don't believe that's an intended feature.

This appears to be an error on my part from our recent password hashing update. I misunderstood what the if statement here actually does, thus generating an invalid login cookie every time a user edits their profile without changing their password.

This has now been undone, and we're all ever-more-aware of just how fun modifying SMF is.

EDIT: Parsifal is claiming credit for the original error. I'll allow it.
