WiFi login update

Well, the WiFi login has worked basically all weekend -- the way it is supposed to!

Steve has been tracking down problems,and to main ones came up --

1. LDAP optimization -- the number of nodes and accounts has been growing, and things were getting slow on the server, so some people were not able to login as their session was timing out. Fixed.

2. Another horrible glitch left over from that terrible server software patch last November-- login data was being truncated, so things weren't cleaning out and it's for being left all over the place, causing all sorts of problems for accounts not been able to login. Found and fixed.

I'm not sure if it is a bug, but it sure can be a problem! Why am I automatically logged out daily at 23:00? I was talking with my dear mother on Skype just now and poof my connection died and so was our call. What's the straight dope on that?
