Google logging in and out

My blog is with Google, and I use Google Reader and Google Mail. They all share the same log in mechanism. This is great, as I only have one set of credentials to remember. However, it backfires massively when I have blogger, reader and gmail open in different tabs, and then sign out of one of them. Suddenly, it all stops working. Google Mail and Reader and Blogger all behave differently in this situation. Blogger and Mail behave okish - both requiring you to sign back in somehow. But Reader just kind of silently stops working. The worst thing is that I have to sign into each app separately, rather than it picking up that I'm signed in again and getting on with it.
