[Chameleon] session expired and popups

this is not something that is very easy to handle which is why we have 
avoided it.

One suggestion ... in your application template, you could write a 
custom piece of javascript that starts a timer for, say, 29 minutes and 
closes open popups if it expires.  The only problem then is that there 
is no central place where popups window handles are registered.  There 
may be some hooks in javascript to determine the handles of windows 
opened via ... you may also be able to close them by window 
name (in the call, a window is assigned a unique name) and 
then search the source of your page for all the window names (by looking 
for calls)



PS  this would be a nice addition to chameleon at some point, to have 
all open windows go through a popup manager that keeps all the window 
handles and manages the callback mechanism, and also handles session 
expiry automagically.  It won't be in the next version though. wrote:
