      Description

      When clicking the "Remember me on this computer" during login, after some time the user is logged out.

      I'm using Active Directory as Security Realm.

      Example protocol:

      I logged in at 09:19 and checked the "Remember me on this computer" checkbox.

      At 10:10 I freshly opened the jenkins front page again and I was logged it.

      At 11:38 again, and I found myself logged out.

      All tests were conducted with Firefox 4, accepting cookies and such.

      This is reproducible on an installation via Debian package. At the time of writing the version number is 1.405

            Changing the title to make sure people don't conflate this with other remember me problems.

            Implemented this in Active Directory plugin 1.35 in conjunction with core changes scheduled for 1.556.

            A work around in the mean time is to make sure you have bind DN and password.

            That workaround doesn't work if your master is on a windows 2008 machine, since you can't enter a bind DN/password, since those fields are hidden.

            The workaround also won't work if you're not using AD.
            We don't use AD, we use a local script for login.
            Yet Jenkins keeps logging me out, several times each day.
            Why?

            @Kohsuke We have Jenkins 1.577 installation with AD and have this issue, but I see that your fix went into 1.556 itself. Could I be seeing a corner case?
