Subject Re: refresh browser - logged out from ACS ?

This doesn't really do much for security, since the sessionKey is still
available to JS in a window variable, so this mostly just breaks
functionality and adds no value.
This probably wasn't discusses with security experts before implementation,
so this just breaks functionality period.
My approach does indeed add some security (set a httponly cookie with the
data) and restores session persistence.
