Flickr + Yahoo = Hell

How do I get Flickr to log me in automatically without also automatically logging me into Yahoo?

I've asked this question at Flickr, Yahoo, a newsgroup and a tech website. I've either gotten no answers or shrugs.
I used to be able to log into Flickr automatically, and be able to quickly browse (usually their 7-days interestingness thing). That did not affect my Yahoo login.
Now my Flickr login is somehow being cached over to Yahoo. 99% of the time I use Yahoo only for their free email. It also screws up my pay AT&T/Yahoo email account.
I don't know how this happened, but I suspect I upgraded something at either/both Flickr and/or Yahoo without knowing what it actually did.
This caching crap is causing me to click a hell of a lot more, having to constantly type in different usernames and passwords, etc. I used to download 20 or 30 Flickr photos a week, totaling about 1,000 pictures at this point. With all the hassle I'm down to just about zero a week.
Is there any way I can get this back to the way it was? My Flickr account isn't a pay account if that matters.
