What are you doing exactly? What calls are you making to what?

Nothing within the REST API restricts things to a single token per browser,
however the Guacamole webapp uses local storage for the user's current
token and will automatically log out the previous stored token when a new
one is used.

If you want to provide a single user with multiple dynamic resources, your
options are:

* Use **one** token for each logical session, not multiple. Provide dynamic
data over the course of their session using that single token via an
extension that integrates your application. Don't generate token after
token for the same user.
* Use the anonymous username (""), which will not store the token
