Subject Re: Logout method of custom login module never called
Date Tue, 07 Jun 2011 06:27:11 GMT

with basic auth logout should happen on every request 
with form auth logout should happen when the session expires.

A servlet filter should not be necessary, however until the bug is fixed that's the best solution.

This is a pretty big problem, hopefully now that you've reminded me of it I can fix it....
