Description Matt Wagner 2012-03-02 11:57:56 EST
Description of problem:
On pages that use Backbone.js, they will re-query every 30 seconds (or whatever), keeping the sessions alive indefinitely. This renders the 15-minute inactivity timeout ineffective if you happen to leave a tab with auto-refreshes open.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in, navigate to a page with Backbone (like the default pool list page)
2. Leave the page unattended for >15 minutes
3. Click some link

Actual results:
Page loads because your session times out.

Expected results:
Page redirects you to login page because your session has timed out.

This is caused by https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=794536 -- which seems to be gaining support for being reverted. I suggest holding off on addressing this bug until the outcome of that one is clear.
Comment 2 Hugh Brock 2012-03-06 09:50:40 EST
This is fixed by reverting the patch for 794536, as above.
