Auto log outs are happening, but the logging doesn't seem to appear anywhere. Is it a log other than the system log?
It is the watchdog log. 2.x branch is no longer supported so I checked this on the 4.x branch. It is logging there but unticking the log options doesn't stop it logging so the problem in 4.x is the opposite of 2.x!
I have renamed the issue and attached a patch to fix the problem in 4.x
Tests passed - committed to 7.x-4.x and set to 6.x-4.x for the backport.
6.x-4.x branch patch.
Tests pass! Committed to 6.x-4.x, closing issue.
