Login info not passing from partner.php <--> index.php

Hi all,

I don’t know if this is really a bug, but if a partner logs in on the storefront and then clicks to the partners.php page, their login info isn’t passed through and vice versa if they login on partners and go to index (storefront). It would be real nice if this could be patched as our partners are also customers, just with some additional categories. I would like to make things as easy as possible for them.

Any suggestions?
