losing sessions?

Hi All,

Weird situation...

On our production environment, one of our users (I have remotely connected
to their system) is losing Session information as soon as they try to do
anything past their login.  Even stranger (I can tell via the title of the
page) that the session information is getting mixed up.  The title of the
page should be the user's name and after clicking on a page that requires
session / cookie information, the title of the page changes to another
user's name.  So something isn't right...

Our development environment (unfortunately) at this time uses Apache (we'll
be upgrading it to Nginx shortly).  This issue does not exist in our
development environment.

The problem computer is behind a proxy and the proxy on that server is
configured as a "text" proxy (i.e. not ip address... rather proxy name).  So
I'm not sure if that would be an issue?

Is it possible that sessions are getting mixed up between users behind a
proxy who's name is the same?

Any suggestions / thoughts?
