Only because this is Mark, i won't mark as WONTFIX.  Patches are always 
welcome :).

This can't really be done cleanly, since the Manager webapp uses BASIC auth.  
There is no way that I know of to tell the browser to stop sending the 
credentials with each request.  As a result, there is no way for the webapp to 
know that the user hasn't logged back in.  This is largely why the "logoff" 
feature was dropped from the servlet spec.

I haven't tested it, but a really dirty hack might be to send a 401 response 
to the logoff, and count on the user to hit the cancel button.
