A question for you when dealing with Cohorts in D&D 3.5

The group I'm currently playing IN (note I am *NOT* a DM) currently has 3 Cohorts and about a billion lesser followers (thankfully none of the lesser followers actually come along with us. I think only one character outfits his followers...but even then I'm not sure).

When we get equipment, at some point (though no one told me until last night) it was decided that when we get loot, and no one wants say the +1 longsword, if I wanted to take it for my cohort, I'd have to pay the cost of the item. Now this I guess I'm okay on. I wish I had a chance to talk about it, but I guess some players and the DM decided either before I got there or on another day all together.

But here is where something is irking me.

So how do you all deal with Cohorts (or similar NPCs who function as part of the party) and Equipment? How about when there is a conflict over an item? Or when someone just isn't paying attention and a Cohort winds up with an item they need?
