The method WAComponent>>session uses a dynamically-scoped variable to 
access the current session.  Seaside testing does not bind that variable 
in the call stack of the test case.  I do provide a way to get it 
though: SCComponentTestCase>>session will return the current session so 
if you change your code to "self session isLoggedIn" it should work.
