  • I am logged into admin.
  • I leave my browser inactive.
  • I see a small login window in front of my active admin screen because my session has timed out.
  • I enter my login credentials.
  • I see my active admin screen in the small window and in the window behind.
  • I _SHOULD_ see the login window close upon successful login.
