OK, but you wouldn't need to login in again when it changes back. Imagine
you use a laptop that changes IP depending if you're in the office or at home
(not that unlikely I suppose):

Currently you have to relogin whenever you change location/IP. With the 
purposed patch you can give up any security (taking that the home is in
some dialup network while the office is in the company's network - not
even class B net) or relogin on any change.

My suggestion is: keep the IP in the cookie path, so you have to login for
any new IP, but never again as long as you have the cookie.

Greetings, Stephan
