To clarify:
- log in with OAuth
- wait 2+ minutes
- in a second browser, as an anonymous user, load the site
- in the first browser, refresh and notice that you're logged out

With the patch now, the OAuth user does disappear from the Who's Online block, but after any action on the site (refresh, clicking a link), they're logged in again. In other words, OAuth users now work like normal users.

Didn't try OpenID yet, but this is looking good. Thanks, Tom.

bye, Dirk

P.S. The patch is not up on geeklog.net yet, I was testing locally.
