Kind of serious forum bug?

This happened to me recently and apparently now it's happened to someone else (though they may not have noticed):

Note the user name in Post #7: "User Name", with someone else's sig. That has happened to me too. I had cleared my browser history etc so I was no longer automatically logged in on my next forum visit. The Username field was blank and there was some obscured password in the login fields and I reflexively clicked on Login. The forum acted like I was logged in successfully and next thing you know I'm posting as "User Name" with someone else's sig.

First time I've seen this, but apparently not the first time this sort of thing has happened. It's a glitch with the username choice. I've fixed for now, and will work with the user to choose a new username.

Thanks for the heads up
