This problem has been resolved, adding it here if others encounter it ...
Poblem: Frequent logouts and sessions getting swapped (or hijacked) for some logged in users. When session swap / hijack happens you would see someone else's name as logged in user on top right and if you do not notice and create an issue or comment, it will go as the other user. Conversely, you may find an issue or comment created by your name but you didn't do it.
Environment: JIRA 6.0.x with Apache 2.2.15 as reverse proxy on CentOS 6.2
Restart of Apache itself fixed the issue, but for future following lines have been commented in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf, which is also recommended configuration.
# CacheEnable disk /
# CacheRoot "/var/cache/mod_proxy"
Won't this affect performance on the UI? We are having this issue (3 hi-jacks in the past 2 weeks) and the security risk it presents is a big deal at my company. But as the admin, I am very concerned about doing anything that may slow the app down. We are already having rendering issues frequently (probably because we are all on the latest dev Chrome).
