LOL, that's... interesting code ;)  Maybe well use it.  

I'm not sure we need to push it quite that far.  If someone really wants to 
block popup even when triggered by user clicks, good for them.  What we 
currently do is popup the current page in a new window, and use the standard 
href to have the browser go back to the original url that triggered the 
login.  This has a few benefits:

1-If the popup is blocked, it not a big deal, the user could always just use 
the back button.
2-If the user was in a tab when a timeout occured, he will continue his work 
from the same tab.
3-If the device does not support popups at all, it works fine.

Not a problem

Yeah, still looking for a magical solution for that...

I don't think I understand what you mean.  From what I understand, we just 
made the URL yet a little shorter (from "http://community.org to 
http://status) but at the cost of a dependency on captive DNS.
