Sounds like an Opera bug:  You would experience this if it's not managing 
cookies the way it's supposed to or managing it's cache properly.  In this 
case, the login cookie is either not being cleared when you explicitly log 
out; or Opera is caching dynamic pages, then blindly reading back from cache 
without doing any sort of sanity checking on whether or not cached data is 
still valid.
