This is my first post to the bug squad forum so let me know if there's a
On Joomla 2.5.3 a logged in user who updates their user profile leaves the
old version of the JUser object in the sessions table. Subsequent calls to
&JFactory::getUser() return stale user object with old profile information
until the user logs in and logs out.
This can be replicated by logging into a user account on the front end. Go
to profile and change first name or last name and save. Check the
#__session table and the JUser object still contains the old object.
I have wanted to contribute to core for a while so unless someone feels
this is somehow urgent and wants to bump it I am going to have a crack at
doing a patch.
