[Grok-dev] Feature request "Log out"

The @@logout.html?nextURL=xxx worked for me provided that nextURL was  
a public view (no grok.requires) otherwise it didn't log me out. This  
might be because I am catching the Unauthorized exception.

Unfortunately if I go to /applications I get automatically logged in  
again. In other words, this solves my real problem :) (adding an  
application and the logging into that application without the  
zope.manager role) but IMHO it isn't a proper logout :(.
