AHA! We have a winner!
I just tried logging in using my own credentials, and I checked the "remember my information" and "log me in automatically" features. Login process worked as normal. Then, I logged out. When I went back to the home page none of the "show regions" show anything. Apparently I'm in some kind of limbo after clicking logout when you select auto login feature.
I'm just not sure what to check from here but hopefully that gives you enough to go on.
