The new version has resolved almost all of the problems... there was a
bit of a snafu because the slave blog is accessing the master blog
tables using the slave blog's credentials (mysql user), but once I
gave that user permission to access the master blog tables it seems
fine... BUT, the logout problem remains. In the master blog I can't
log out of the admin interface. I can from the slave blog control
panel though...
