If your login is based on HTTP basic auth, rather than the 
CookieCrumbler, then the 'loggged_out' template does not actually log 
you out;  this behaviour is due to the nature of basic auth, which 
doesn't contemplate true logouts.  The 'manage_zmi_logout' link actually 
just raises Unauthorized, which is not what you usually want.
