I am from Bern and we say "Gruesech", which is a bit different from
the "Gruezi" in Zurich.

There is actually a property in the application called
#redirectHandler that should be used for that kind of redirects. It
looks like this is currently not done in Seaside 2.8, what is clearly
a bug. We will fix that in 2.9, as it requires to refactor WARegistry
and WAApplication that are in quite a strange relationship right now.

For now I suggest that you create a custom application class and copy
and override the method handleExpireRequest: to do whatever you want.
