Wordpress Membership: the flow sign up

Wordpress Membership: the flow of the system is lacking I think

You fill in your details and sign up
The next page is the subscription details
You choose the option you want
The next page tells you that you have succeesfully signed up and now have access to privileged areas (or something to the effect

This is true. You have to sign in first
There is no default sign in page provided, so you have to make sure somewhere you explicitly give a sign in page link - else it will all fall down and the user is confused

In the absence of a double opt in facility, I think the user should indeed be logged in - as suggested by the worlds

Am I going mad or do I have a point??
