This is in an 4.0 svn install:

  1. View a page as guest
  2. Edit said page
  3. Get access error which leads to login page
  4. Log in
  5. Cancel edit (probably irrelevant)

No longer able to log out.

The SID for both guest and logged-in user is the same. Logging out undefs authUser but, presumably because of the SID, authUser is restored to logged-in user

Hmm, not reproducible in my SVN setup, nor in TWiki:Codev.TWikiVMDebianStable, nor here at develop (firefox). What browser / client setup is used?

-- SP

Safari. Not that it should matter. The error is happening on the server side, as I can see it in my apache2 error log when I put debugging messages in.


We established that this problem can be worked around by printing $cgisession->id() immediately after the AUTHUSER is undeffed. I suspect the session is being cached by perl, somehow, even though it is apparently flushed to disc.

I can't reproduce it either.

(For this Support topic, note that TWiki:Plugins/NatSkinPlugin makes logout work. -- TWiki:Main/MarcusLeonard)

I put in a strategic "flush" in the hope that it will solve the problem; but since i don;t see it, it's hard to be sure.
