Default Ch 16: Login control not logging in

In the first Try It Out of Chapter 16, we create a Login with almost no code. So you would think I couldn't screw it up. :)

Yet, when I log in, I get no error message, but I'm not logged in. I go back to the Login page and it says to Log In, not Log Out.

I set DestinationPageUrl to Login.aspx, to see if was the page jump causing the problem, I got the same behavior. It never says Log Out. When I told the control to hide when logged in, it never hid.

I set my IE privacy controls to None, same problem. Firefox has the same behavior.

When I unset my DestinationPageUrl, I do jump to the Default page. That seems to mean I log in, if just for a pico-second.

Here's my Web Config:

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms timeout="1440" />

And here is all of my Login.aspx:

<%@ Page Title="Log in to Planet Wrox" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPages/Frontend.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Login.aspx.cs" Inherits="Login" %>

<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="head" Runat="Server">

<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="cpMainContent" Runat="Server">
<h1>Log in to Planet Wrox</h1>
<asp:Login ID="Login1" runat="server"
CreateUserText="Sign Up for a New Account at Planet Wrox"
<asp:LoginStatus ID="LoginStatus1" runat="server" />

Any Clues?

Thanks in advance

EDIT: OK, this is spooky. I went ahead and did the next Try It Out with the LoginView as opposed to the Login control and everything works fine.

Maybe your page didn't refresh when you went back to Login.aspx? Try pressing Ctrl+F5 and see if that makes a difference.

Alternatively, add a LoginStatus to default.aspx and see if it correctly shows your logged in status.
