I typed in the ticket, then checked back with the email whether there
was anything else I forgot to write and when returning to the browser
I modified some text and pressed on Preview. Then Boom, no TRAC_CREATE
permissions and my ticket submission couldn't be recovered by going
back (nice wiping that tracs makes ...). Maybe I'm an infinitesimally
slow typer.

All in all the issue is not how fast can a ticket submitter type, but
whether there are proper recovery mechanisms for reauthetication and
whether the reauthetication intervall isn't paranoically short (we
don't have any reauthetication timeouts with, and
that works well there). I've seen similar with mirrormanager, but
there the session recovers and continues smoothly after the
reauthetication, while trac didn't even try to reauthenticate and ate
my data.

Don't ask me to file that somewhere that will time out again ... ;)
