Summary:  Cookie Session Expiration Bug

Original Submission:  Using cookie sessions, if a user stays logged in and the 
cookie expires, the user is experiences being logged out and cannot log in 
again. In reality what is happening is phpgroupware is not killing the session 
and will not let the user log in again. If you manually call logout.php or 
restart the users browser, the user can log in again.

Here what skwashd reccommends be done:
<skwashd> the session cookies are being interpreted wrongly after a session 
time out
<skwashd> and so phpgw is getting confused
<skwashd> but .... if you call logout manually it resolves the issue
<fixe> ah, hmmm. so maybe we can have phpgw kill dead sessions?
<skwashd> so .....
<skwashd> we need the index page to check if the session is dead ....
<skwashd> if yes then throw the user to login ... after killing the session
<skwashd> if no ... continue on as usual
I am making an attempt at this but I cannot yet figure out how phpgw determines 
if a session has ended. The cookie itself does nto appear to have a timestamp, 
it only says "expires when session has ended". - Adam (fixe)
