#872 Session time-out not setting %in values


On solaris 8 with webmin versions 0.990 and 1.030,
using Mozilla 1.1.

Webmin lets users go to the next page after the session
timeout has expired; however any images on the new page
fail to load. The login screen does come up if they
click a link on that page, but there is no message
about the session timing out. Looking at the %in hash
that is being passed, it looks like only the $in{page}
value is set; there is no $in{timed_out} value, or any
other key in the %in hash.

We've seen this behavior across different webmin
modules, including the webmin configuration modules,
with admin and regular user accounts, but it doesn't
happen every time. For example, as admin sitting on the
'Webmin configuration' menu page, letting the session
time expire, then clicking on 'Webmin themes'. The
login screen came up, but $in{timed_out} was not passed
to it. On another test doing the same steps
$in{timed_out} was set with a value of 176. We were
using 1 minute session time outs for testing, but also
observed this with longer times.

    Thanks for the bug report, I see the cause of this problem
    .. It will be fixed
    in the next webmin release, due out very soon.
