Subject Re: form-based authentication & session.invalidate

Hmm. I always thought that when using the SSO valve, logging out of one 
webapp automatically logs you out of all webapps.

The 5 code looks broken based on *very quick* inspection compared to 4.1 
based on lines 304-308.

         if ( event.getData() != null
              && "logout".equals( event.getData().toString() )) {
             // logout of all applications
         } else {
             // invalidate just one session
             deregister(ssoId, session);

I haven't been able to locate how logout can be a value in a SessionEvent.
