No, I think he's talking about the "basic" authentication information,
that browsers keep in memory until they are stopped.

I think that if you give them an AUTH_REQUIRED, it might clear the
password, but that would also make the authentication dialog box appear
on their machine, which would be rather confusing.

Personally, I use cookies for authentication instead, you can remove
those at will.
