Unfortunately, www.site.com and site.com have to be treated as separate authentication domains. The solution here is to either use server redirects (so a user going to site.com ends up at www.site.com, or vice versa), or to support wildcarding in the browser so that a user can let it know that separate domains should be treated equivalently. Which is what bug 249115 is about.
