For the archives:

I figured out the problem.  I had 'session_name' set to 'myapp' in 
config.yml, which means my login parameter cookie was overwriting the 
session cookie.

I must not have been thinking clearly when I did that, because it's 
obvious to me now that they're separate things, with necessarily 
different lifetimes.
