Subject RE: Ending a Session After Browser Has Gone Away
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2002 16:16:00 GMT
Correction.  Sorry If I missed this.  If a users has to reboot their
computer, their browser won't (typically) reuse an old session anyway.  It
will force a new cookie which looks, on the server-side, like a new session.

Although, this doesn't help you to know that the old one should invalidated.
It will still live on until the session timeout has been hit.

Are you trying to force killing of the session for some reason like
performance or memory?
