I would strongly suggest that my fixes to PmWikiDraw have 'cured' the
issue as it fixed an identical issue elsewhere :)

As to how long a session lasts, thats usually configuration dependant.
 Opening a 'new ' browser (ideally a different one, i.e
InternetExplorer rather than firefox) will give you a new session.  To
close all sessions, if you can, just restart the web server.  I
*think* that will kill all sessions in most cases...I'm not sure if
some are clever enough to persist between restart however :)
