> Problem Description
> The catalog itself works fine, as does most functions in the Admin UI.
> An example scenario in which I encounter problems is as follows:
> 1) I log into the Admin UI
> 2) I go to the Table Manager and select to edit the options table
> 3) I check an item to delete from the options table
> 4) I click the "Delete checked" button and OK the confirmation dialog
> 5) I get the Admin UI login page
> 6) I log in again and get a page that says
> "Error: flex_select: no database "
> 7) I go to the options table and the item has not been deleted
> Problem Notes
> This isn't just something that happens with the options table either. It
> happens when I try to delete a record from any table using the Table
> Manager (flex_select and family) or the Item Editor.
> However, if I have /cgi-bin/speedquest in the CGI_URL variable,
> everything works fine. Even if I still have RewriteEngine on for that

My money is on a session switch. If you look in the logs, is the session id
changed when you log in again?
This would happen if the cookie path was not being set properly.
