I'm having major issues with this.
Set it up, works fine for a while, but if you try logging in and out with different usernames on a dev forum, it stops showing the admin tools and username etc at the top of the page on the WP side.

Try to login to WP admin directly /wp_admin, and get directed back to the forum with an error message

Any help on this would be great. Using Firefox by the way.
vB4.2.2 and WP 3.8 may be the problem? I no it doesnt say its supported, but maybe there is a solution.

It appears to be working for me on VB 4.2.2

However, with the new Wordpress 3.8 update I am curious... will the plugin work if I upgrade to Wordpress 3.8?

You need to uninstall the product from vB, delete cookies and cache, and you should be back where you were before. Also delete all the files and folders from WP and vB via FTP.
Shame there is no solution to this.

Same here, although I have a weird issue.
I use a plug-in for category to transform them in subdomain.
sub.domain.com and I can log-in (added the subdomain in vBulletin whitelist) but it is redirected to www and if I go to sub.domain.com the session isn't kept

Working perfectly if I disable the subdomain plugin. Anyone had similar issue?

Have it installed between VB 4x and Wiki, and there is a gaping hole somewhere on the wiki side that allows anyone to bypass the vbsso and register. I've presented the issue to the developer, but they seem unmotivated to look into it... Suggested a pay for a support ticket on their site, but the option doesn't exist....

My bad, I thought donating to remove the footer might have gotten somewhere when I first installed before we found the issue....

Just remove the code in the wiki for registration and link to your forum registration instead like I did. Works well.
