Well, if you teach hundreds of courses, then it is not practical, that
if you login to one, then the bubbles in all the others go away... well,
I only teach 5 courses per semester, two of which are lon-capa
courses. Still I don't think this is a good feature.  I can see it makes
sense to remove bubbles after login to the same course, but not another
course. Could this possibly be corrected?
