[Seaside] Log Out Without Expiring

I am using Seaside 2.8.

I would like to do something different when a page expires than when  
the user logs out.  In the first case, I'd like to put up a page that  
tells the user the page has expired, and in the latter case, I'd like  
to just redirect to the log-in page.  In the latter case, the session  
should also be expired, to make it necessary to log in, but it should  
not tell the user that the session has expired.

What is the easiest way to do this?

What I have tried is to create my own subclass of WAApplication and  
override the #handleExpiredRequest: method, wherein I replace the line
	self redirectResponseFor: url
	self redirectHandler redirectPageExpiredTo: url.

This puts up the notification when the page expires.  However, since I  
am using
	self session expire
on a log-out, I get the same notification when the user logs out.

If I leave in the original code, an expired page and the log-out both  
go back to my log-in page with no notification.

Seems I can do one or the other, but not both.

I have considered making my own Session class, but can't figure out  
how to access it, since self session returns nil in an inspector.

Thanks for any help,
