IIRC, I vaguely remember running into this issue and I discovered
mythweb "remembers" the mobile vs. desktop setting in the session info
which is somehow tied to the authentication data you used to log in
with.  If you use a different username/password on the desktop system
vs. the phone, the sessions do not conflict.
