“We’re using Rails 2.3.x built-in Digest Auth to hide the production/demo env of a site that doesn’t have a user model yet. It seems like every few requests we have to reauth – possible worse when multiple computers request concurrently”
Make sure there aren’t any failing requests (such as an ajax firing off an illegal route) that might be causing the browser to think it is no longer authed? Maybe just stick with using Basic Auth via an .htaccess? A number of other comments and guessed were thrown around, but nothing conclusive.

Some Jasmine tests were failing on CI in Selenium, but not locally.
It turned out to be some tests that fail when the window size is to small. The team bringing this up added a helper for Jasmine to resize the window if it was too small. Another team mentioned new Selenium runs fullscreen by default. Another team gave the Jasmine test block a static style and large size in css.
