Will not let me vote on answers in Atlassian Answers forum

If I try to vote on an question in Answers, and forgot to login first, I get the message "Sorry but anonymous users cannot vote...". Once I login and try to vote again on that particular question, it still gives me the same popup... "Sorry but anonymous users cannot vote..."

Anyone else have this problem?

I just vote your question up and down, seemed to work. Maybe try again now

A comment on this - I think this is really important. Most users who come across a useful post from a Google search might choose to vote it up if it was useful, but can easily give up if the signin experience is difficult. It's rare that someone will go to the lengths you did, to ask a question or to revisit the page.

What I'd really like to do is a popup lightbox that allows you to sign in (or even register) right there, then do the vote increment without a second click, after a successful login.

I suspect you have to refresh the page you were originally on?
