User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040623 Camino/0.8

When logging into the same system as different users (in this case, my ISP's
spam filter, to check my address and my postmaster address at the same time),
the logins can't keep each other straight.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a tab, go to some system's login screen
2. Create a second tab and go to the same login screen
3. Log in as one user in the first tab
4. Immediately go to the other tab and log in as a different user
Actual Results:  
Both tabs are logged in as the same user. In one test, one tab worked fine,
while the other spontaneously required re-login to the site. Obviously, Camino
is not keeping discreet states for each tab.

Expected Results:  
I should be able to be logged in to a web site as different users in seperate
windows or tabs.

This is up to the servers implementation, and is not Camino's fault. The servers
are presumably using cookies as the identifier for users, and cookies are
browser-wide.

The only way to "fix" this would be for every tab to have separate cookie
spaces, which would cause far, far more problems than it would fix.
