login as user does not default to user's default site

All of our users are set up to default to one of two sites: www or undergraduate-admissions. However, when I impersonate any user, Cascade always defaults to the Global site, and I don't understand why. Is this a bug?

    Looking over the code, when assuming the identity of a user, you are redirected to /home.act. This is effectively the dashboard of the Site you are currently in side of. Because the User administration is in the Global area, you are being redirected to the Global area.

    While this is expected behavior, I see your point that if assuming the identity of a user should mimic logging in as that user, it would make sense to change to their default Site. I went ahead and logged an improvement in our issue tracker and assigned it to this discussion so you can track its progress (upper right-hand corner of this page).

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
