Hi Milan,

I have just done something similar.  I decided to not have a fully
automatic login.  I have a login screen with a "remember me" checkbox.  If
I find the cookie, I fill in the userId/password and check the box.  The
user is free to change anything on the screen.  If the login button is
clicked and the "remember me" checkbox is not checked, I kill the cookie.
If the login is successful and the "remember me" checkbox is checked, I
refresh the cookie.

I know this is not exactly what you are asking but if you like it, your
question goes away.
