Any time a page attribute is changed it has a side effect of
logging out the browser.  The reason for this is that lots of people
get confused and then ask "I set a password on XYZ but it doesn't work 
-- I'm never prompted for the password!"  and the reason they aren't
prompted is because their current login privileges grant access to XYZ.

But this behavior can be disabled by setting in local/config.php:

    $EnablePostAttrClearSession = 0;
