     I'm trying to implement a logout without using the
CmsJspLoginBean.logout(), because it invalidates the entire session and I
don't want it.
I read in another post in this forum that this can be accomplished with:

	String guestUser = OpenCms.getDefaultUsers().getUserGuest();
	cms.getCmsObject().loginUser(guestUser, "Guest");

Note that I canged the Guest password to "Guest" as because opencms 6.2.2
does not accept an empty password (I checked the source code) and throws an

The problem is that this method works only for the lifecycle of the jsp page
where this snippet is invoked.
When I switch to another page it seems to retain the old login. 

Anyone had the same problem? 
More generally, had anyone solved the problem of logging out without
invalidating the session?
