I constantly have to login even though I choose "stay logged in." If I have multiple tabs open and the session expires they all show a basic auth login dialog which never works. I have to refresh the page to login again and if I do it doesn't work in the other tabs when I refresh them. I have to login yet again. Then once everything is logged in correctly, the session eventually is reset forcing me to login AGAIN. This usually happens after sleeping my laptop over night and getting back to work the next day. I never close the browser.

Recently, I have started using an android tablet, but the issue existed prior as well on one single browser on my laptop. It seems my autologin cookies are being cleared by redmine for whatever reason.

I have the autologin cookie set to expire after 365 days.
