We're using the wwassignment module in moodle to access webwork, and after (i think) version 2.7 i'm constantly getting the error message: 

cookieUser = ... and paramUser = ...@su.se are different. at /var/webwork/webwork2/lib/WeBWorK.pm line 307

As far as I can gather this is because I use another login to administer webwork than my moodle account, and if I've logged in as the former it remembers this and will not let me access webwork through moodle.

This has also created some issues with students who accidentally log in as guests on the courses that allow this, basically forcing them to restart the browser before gaining access with their moodle accounts.

Is there any way to revert to the old behavior when webwork silently just changed the logged in user?
