401.0 Error (Unauthorized) - 2 Web Tabs

I don't know whether or not this is some web browser thing (using Chrome), or whether there is something wrong with my files, but I am getting the following behavior:

1) One tab with site open, logged in so you can see "Edit" on content.

2) Second tab open to site's Dashboard (Admin).

If I click "Logout" from the Dashboard on the second tab, that tab returns to the site's homepage and is logged out (expected behavior).

However, if I switch to the first tab (which was not logged out by clicking "Logout") and then click on "Edit" the behavior I would expect is to be redirected to the Log In page.  Instead, I get the 401.0 Unauthorized error.  The requested URL is "../Admin/Widgets/EditWidget/13?ReturnUrl=%2F".

Am I missing something obvious? Or is this just the quirky behavior of tabbed web browsing?

Thanks.
