Ah Ha!!

Many thanks for the clarification!!

So if I understand correctly, the way to do this is to keep a 
UserManager (a Map of Users, implements HttpSessionBindingListener) in 
the Context, while also keeping a copy in each Session. When the 
UserManager is unbound, it can remove the User. Or something like that

Indeed! It is actually the verb, ie. when a dog goes "Woof! Woof!" it 
is barking .... they also growl, yelp, whine and howl ;)
If you say a Human is barking, you are saying (in slang) that they are 
Mad ....
The noun, bark is the (crinkly brown etc.) covering on a tree ....
There is also is a (not so lovely) town in Essex called Barking (my 
apologies to any residents :)

PS, my favourite onomatopoeia in French is "ronronner" :)
