Quick question to all client developers...

Before sending a postevent, do you send a login first?

The reason I ask, is 1) Obviously there will be another request to the server (higher load), but 2) it ensures that the post gets allocated against the correct client id.

For example, you have two clients running (separate machines/platforms), and they're both logged in. If you post from one and then the other, and they don't send the login mode first, they'll both be allocated against the same client.

For me, who is watching client stats very closely, this is not good.

So, would it make sense to send login before postevent?
