Switch-back user mode: Login refresh problem
When you're logged in as an admin and switch to another backend user in switch-back mode, TYPO3 asks for the password of this user once the login must be refreshed. So the only possibility is to log out and login again as you normally don't know every user's password.

It's no regression as far as I can tell.
In TYPO3 <= 4.3 once the session has expired there is a popup window allowing relogin. If I logged in as "admin" and changed to user "editor" in switch-back mode, the popup suggests "editor" as username. But there I can change username to "admin" and enter the admin password and so I stay logged in.
In TYPO3 4.4+ login refresh is done by ExtJS. Now if I am logged in as "admin" and change to user "editor" in switch-back mode, the popup doesn't let me choose the username (see screenshot), so as I don't know the password from user "editor", I cannot stay logged in.

- Status changed from New to Closed
since 'switch to user' is meant as a temporary test from an admin side, and with the default session timeout being increased to many more hours meanwhile, i don't consider this issue to me relevant to be solved anymore at the moment. i'll close it for now. please feel free to re-open the issue with more description on a possible solution for at least core version v9 if you still feel this should be tackled.
