      Description

      I've had an issue with Guacamole where I forget to logoff a VNC session, go use a completely different computer or device, try to login to the same session and get caught in an "autoreconnect loop" where the new session logs off off the old session which then autoreconnects that old session and logs off the new session ad inifinitum. There's no way to stop this because, if I'm not in front of the computer I forgot to log off, I have no way of shutting down that session remotely.

      Since many of us leave tabs open rather than remembering to close them, it seems that the behavior should be, in the event of a user trying to simultaneously log into the same session, that autoreconnect should only apply to the most recent session and the older session should be disconnected and remain that way.

      Otherwise, you run into a situation where you were using Guacamole at the office to log into a VNC session and are then unable to use Guacamole to log into that session from anywhere else which sort of defeats the purpose of remote access.
