Multiple users same username in Web fails badly

Reported by: smith@… Owned by: smartp@…
Priority: major Milestone: v1.0.0
Component: Raptor Web Version: v0.2.1
Keywords: Cc:

Description

Only one person can use a particular raptor web username at any one time, which is fine. But the second person who logs in just gets a blank screen with no explanation.

Would be better to fail more gracefully - e.g. tell the second person that someone is already logged in with that username.

Possibly raptor web could track that the requests are coming in from a different person using the same credential by tying the first session to an IP address, or a cookie in the browser, or something?

Added an error message to the login page if failure is due to invalid username or password. A single user can now login 5 times, if a 6th attempt is made, the new login allowed in and one of the previous logins is invalidated.
