[Technical Description of the issue]
When logged in using SSO bypass link (<server>/share/page?pt=login), choosing Logout shows Basic authentication dialog box in browser instead of redirecting to the login form.
[Steps to reproduce]
1. Install Alfresco
2. Configure external authentication, verify that when header is present you can login as a desired user.
3. Disable ModifyHeaders plugin, use the direct SSO bypass link (<server>/share/page?pt=login).
4. Login as admin user.
5. Choose Logout from the user menu.
User is logged out and the bypass login page is shown.
User sees a Basic authentication prompt. User doesn’t see the login page unless he/she click Cancel. This is bad from user experience prospective.
