Auto Logout bug fixed

Anyone who uses the MIS2000 web system regularly may have noticed a rare but highly annoying bug that has been around for a long time.

But it has a button on it that will (supposedly) keep you logged in if you click it. But every once in a while, even if you click the button, you'd wind up finding out you've been logged out anyway when you tried to do something.
