Hi Paul,

would not the "easy and safe" way be to propragate the session to all of 
the popups, so they will expire as well? Okay, the windows will not 
automatically close, but they won't cause any errors as they do now when 
pressing buttons.

Or can't this be done with the session mechanism present in Chameleon?

Best regards,
