Ah, ok. I didn't know/remember that detail. Thanks.

Anyway, the problem persists. I want to have data that is unique to a user
(not a session as such, as one browser session may have more than one
user), but is not persistent after a logout. So I need session data that is
cleared on logoff of the FE user.

Meanwhile I solved this, after talking to Ren?: while getKey() and setKey()
data is stored in fe_session_data and only cleaned after 24 hours, the data
set through getSessionData() and setAndSaveSessionData() is stored in
fe_sessions - and is removed after a call to logoff().

Thanks for your input, sorry for the confusion. :)
