The user should be logged out after closing the browser.
This is a change in how browsers behave - session cookies on certain tabs are no longer cleared when the browser is closed.

hi Clayton, I tried on firefox and Chrome on Fedora14 and RHEL6.2, the users will be logged out after closing the browser (not just close the tabs), I think the change should work the same on all the browsers and systems.
Unfortunately it's not under our control. We set the cookie the standard way, and it's up to each browser to make that determination. Users can control how browsers deal with their cookies typically.
