Logout doesn't really log me out?

I sometimes get in a weird state where clicking on the Logout link
doesn’t log you out, it rather does the same thing as clicking on
Home. I’m using mason_handler.fcgi.

Has anyone else seen this happen and what did you do to track it down
and correct it? I’m a little bit lost on this one.

Also, I’ve hacked a bit so one can have more than one database on the
same machine. Unfortunately, that only works with the FastCGI
implementation so far. It means a number of changes in the
installation, adds a ‘createapp.sh’ script that adds the application
you wish to have, and splits config.pm into two parts, one for system-
global information and one for per-application information. It works
as well for use with webmux.pl, but only for one application per site.
I’ll send in the patch soon if this seems interesting.

This only happens to me when I’m logged in as root to do admin stuff.
When logged in as a normal user, it works as expected.

I’ve never bothered to track it down since I’m rarely in as root and
just quit the browser.

I get that with normal users as well. However, I’ve discovered that
this seems to depend on the browser. Everything works fine with
Netscape, but I get the above behavior with Opera.

Is this with 2.0.8? With some earlier revs, we weren’t properly sending a no-cache pragma…

Opera is displaying the cached page. I had similar problems, a refresh
didn’t help either. I can’t remeber exactly, but I think I changed the
cache prefs to Always check modified documents, instead of after 5 hours or
something like that.

I’m testing the latest stuff from the CVS repository, main trunk.

I’m using Opera all the time, so it must be some combination of
things.

It doesn’t have to do with no-cache; a forced reloading the page
would normally cause it to do the right thing. In this case, the
logout doesn’t happen – you can click about and continue working.

If your browser actually hits and loads /NoAuth/Logout.html, your
session should be gone. Can you verify (from http server logs) that
it’s doing this?

If your copy of opera has decided to cache /NoAuth/Logout.html,
say due to the no-cache issue I describe earlier, then the RT server
will never know you clicked Logout and you will not be logged out.On Thu, Nov 08, 2001 at 04:26:40PM -0500, Vivek Khera wrote:

That must be it. When I’m root, I usually last only a few minutes in
RT, and Opera holds the cache for 5 minutes whether you want it to or
not. They really need to fix this issue… grr.
