Great, welcome as the first "real" user!

Did you do anything without being logged in before?  This error is mostly
caused by the editor misbehaving; you can expect it more frequently when you
edit pages.  (Please do not yet edit CDs, you will break them!  Wait for
another announcement later this week.)  See
http://wiki.openmath.org/index.jsp?title=troubleshooting for a workaround.
Yes, it's no surprise that you were logged in and you user account was
created.  SWiM (actually the underlying IkeWiki system) is heavily based on
JavaScript, so this misbehaviour occurs on the client side only.  The server
side is not affected by that and works fine.  (And the code on the server is
much easier to debug than the client-side code -- that's why there are many
actual bugs on the client, while it's rather missing features on the server

Hope that helps,
