Interesting :-)

This is what i tried to do! I made some auth. ext. and now i had to make 
logoff. By looking some other auth. ext. i concluded that it should be 
enough to form a link with GET parameter logintype set to logoff (hm, maybe 
i set it to logout, i have to check) and by clicking on the link FE user 
would log out. But that didn't work - session was not destroyed, so i was 
wandering if i have to do something more, maybe call logoff method manually 
or something. So it should be enough to set logintype GET paramtere to 
logoff/logout to destroy FE user session? THX!
