..timing out the users session...

Read the perldoc for CGI::Session, not just the first part of it, but the entire thing like the section on the expire() method.

...The problem I have then is ... and/or stopping anyone logging in with the same id....

CGI::Session stores things about the connecting session, hence you will know the IP address of the client that created the session and can, whenever validating that session on every subsequent request, check it again. If it is not the same then deny the request (see remote_addr() in the perldoc).

[marto]: good morning all
[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: The fun show at $work continues, as The Big Project is now in its second week of frantic live-bugfixing and weekend releases where nobody knows what went live. Nothing has been tested anyway.
erix mutters cantankerously under his breath
Corion watches from the sidelines. Or rather, from behind, as my system only gets output from that process and my programs adhere strictly to the GIGO design principle.
[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, the sad thing is that all I can do is document things, so I can point fingers when the auditors come :-/
[Corion]: "I'm here to open tickets and point fingers. And I'm all out of tickets."
[erix]: didn't Sybase have pretty good auditing? :) (this is a vague memory)
[erix]: (culprits often are upstream of db of course)
