Session timeout in one webapp cancels all SingleSignOn sessions

           Summary: Session timeout in one webapp cancels all SingleSignOn
                    sessions
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.0.4 Final
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: patrick_conant@yahoo.com


When a user is logged into multiple webapps via the SingleSignOn valve and a 
single one of those webapps' sessions expires, the user has to re-login to the 
currently active webapp.

This issue seems to have arisen in revision 1.7 of the file /jakarta-tomcat-
4.0/catalina/src/share/org/apache/catalina/authenticator/SingleSignOn.java.  
When a single session expires, the SessionEvent(s) method calls deregister(..) 
which cancels out all of the active sessions for a user.

While I agree that there should be a single sign off for this valve, a single 
session timeout should not cause a global signout.  Take the example of a 
person logged into multiple webapps in a portal (say Yahoo mail and chat).  
When the user's mail session times out but the chat session is still active, 
the user should not be kicked out of chat...  But when a user _actively_ signs 
out of mail, they should also be signed out of chat.
