Seems to me the problem is a social one, not a technological one, so use a
social solution.  Find a way to more strongly encourage end-users to
logout.  For instance, automatically send them warning emails if they
time-out instead of logout.  Flash big warning messages to them at next
logon.  Cut their pay.  Whatever.
