Owncloud client asks me for authentication after every network change

Expected behaviour

After I authorise desktop client it should stay authorized untill I logout or reinstall client.

Actual behaviour

Mac OS X desktop client asks me to authorize every account (have more than one) again and again whenever I change the network I’m connected to.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Connect new account to desktop client
  2. Login to account in web browser
  3. Provide 2FA code (TOTP turned on for account)
  4. After few hours change the network you are connected to Desktop client opens web browser auth window for every account or some of them requesting authorization and providing 2FA again

  1. Client logfile: Output of owncloud --logwindow or owncloud --logfile log.txt
    (On Windows using cmd.exe, you might need to first cd into the ownCloud directory)

  2. Web server error log:

  3. Server logfile: ownCloud log (data/owncloud.log):

Looks like a server configuration issue. I can’t tell for sure without a log excerpt, but as far as I can see, the server rejects the issued OAuth2 token once the client tries to use it. Could be caused by a timeout setting on the server, some oversensitive security extension (which denies access on IP changes), etc.

Please provide a log excerpt.
