t3lib_userAuth::logoff deletes all values of the logged user that got 
stored either in be_sessions or fe_sessions. But in fe data is stored in 
fe_session_data. So it might be helpfull:

* either to have a flag that enables the delete of fe_session_data if 
set and user logs out
* or have a parameter for the extension determining whether data is 
stored in fe_session_data (default) or in fe_sessions

Or do I miss interpret ??_sessions.ses_data?
