well it's a bit more complicated. the listener is bound to the
workspace, but the workspace object is bound to the session that
logged on that workspace.

so, if you do a Repository.login(), a new Workspace and a new Session
object is created. if you do a session.logout, both are discarded. and
so are the eventlisteners. the 'noLocal' flag referrs to the session
that registers the listener (via it's local workspace object).
