You have probably noticed this annoying lon-capa behavior (bug 2290):

 * After logout, any remaining bubbles are removed from instructors
   NAV page whether the instructor has visited the page on which the
   bubbles appear, or not.

 * If I enter one lon-capa course (or take an author role), after
   logout, bubbles go away in all other courses. In effect this means
   that every time I login to lon-capa, I need not only check every
   course for new bubbles, but also answer them right away.

In fact,

 * if you do nothing other than login and logout again,  or login and
   answer an e-mail and log out again, then all bubbles in
   all your courses disappear from the NAV pages.


If you kill the session by closing down the browser, without proper
logout from lon-capa, then next time you return to lon-capa, all bubbles
will be intact.
