Re: [Pulp-list] Minor usability problem with stale cached login credentials

Part of that's a display problem in my own management client [1], but
I'm considering raising an upstream bug on Pulp as well, since the error
details from Pulp in this case are currently just:

"sslv3 alert certificate expired"

Changing that to something like "Cached login credentials have expired,
please refresh with 'pulp-admin auth login'" would definitely have saved
me some time today.

This is one of those things that annoyed us in the beginning and after a while of never getting around to fixing it, we developed blinders and don't even notice anymore :)

This sprint I'm looking to get login/logout functionality into the v2 client, I'll make sure I don't fall into the same trap again.
