Log out of your GMail session using the sign out option at the top.
This is a "feature" on desktop systems too. I use two gmail accounts
on the 770 and N800 just fine.

I have noticed this far less in the N800 and I think it is an out of
memory issue. Try increasing the size of your Flash memory cache file.

Don't know what could be going on here ... maybe ebay builds a session
ID into its URL making it look significantly different each time.

That is a handy feature ... I thought it already did that though.

Not sure what you are referring to here. I can see the point behind
not echoing any of your password on the screen for security purposes.

I have also been seeing this random capitalization problem. I don't
know if someone has submitted a bug report yet.

Unfortunately, the source code is out of the communities control (and
it would seem Nokia's control as they just license the code for a
third party). So improvements might have to wait until the N9xx series
as precedent would dictate that Nokia won't pay for the license to
include a new version in previous tablet models ... which is their
call to make.
