Tricky New Feature

Longtime readers will recall that there’s a tricky bug cum feature that inconveniently forgets the “New since your Last Visit” and “Discussion since your Last Visit” items once you’ve clicked on a link anywhere on the site. This has always kind of made these features only half useful (you could work around by clicking “Back” in your browser, and reading the page with the links that was cached, but that was kind of inelegant).

I’m happy to say that I’ve [probably] solved this problem once and for all. The fix hasn’t received extensive testing yet, but suffice to say that the site should now remember the new items for the entire duration of your visit.
