[Grok-dev] Grok UI Manager Logout

Hi, Michael

Thanks for the reply.    It's quite possible that the session cookie has 
nothing to do with the manager login, as you say.  It's just that I 
picked up from the Bluebream FAQ that zope3.3 supports logout and that 
it's disabled by default.  The FAQ says that by including

<adapter factory="zope.authentication.logout.LogoutSupported" />

in etc/site.zcml, one can enable logout support.  It's all pretty 
confusing.  A previous version of grok/zope that I used had a logout 
button on the management screen, and that used to work.   I do 
understand that basic auth (not cookie based auth) has no way of knowing 
when the session is closed.  Surely though, even if this is the case, 
one can still _tell_ the session it is closed?

Take care,
