Why can't I stay logged in to Flickr?

For some reason I can't stay logged into Flickr for very long. Do they have some function that kicks off users after thirty minutes or so? I find that if I click on other users' photostreams or want to add them as a contact (or add a photo my favorites, or do anything else that requires me to be logged in), I have to login again. Anyone else having this issue?

What browser? What OS? Running any cookie managers or identity cleaners?

Has this been an ongoing problem? They seem to be having a lot of problems with the database today.

For the past couple weeks at least. Dell PC running Windows 2000 and IE5. AFAIK no cookie managers, but it's a work computer so I don't really know for sure.

This is just a guess, but is it possible there is someone else at work who is using Flickr and you two somehow show the same IP address to flickr.com so it's overwriting cookies when the two of you use it at once? Does it happen on non-work computers? I recall this sort of thing happened with MeFi from time to time, one user would go to the MeFi homepage and find he was logged in as someone else.
