Hi Robley,

Once a user has logged in an has selected a role, then all the normal
access controls kick in and the 'public' aspect is ignored.

No becuase any access to the server will send the cookie which
identifies who they are what course they are in etc..

some people prefer to use the back button some people prefer to use a
new window.
