When attempting to keep using the existing Siebel session by opening a new browser tab after the Siebel tab had been closed the following error occurs:

Session Warning Message

You have initiated a Siebel session while another Siebel session is currently active. Please choose the option that applies to you.
- You already have a Siebel session with unsaved data running in another browser window. To save data from a second session go to the already open session and either save and exit or continue to use that data.
- You do not have unsaved data in your other session and wish to close it and launch a new session. Click here
- You have closed your previous Siebel browser instance using the Close instead of the Logoff feature and wish to open a new Siebel session. Click here

It can be reproduced using standard repository, and no multiple tabbed browsing has been configured.

3. Switch back to the Siebel tab and copy the Siebel URL, i.e. https://webserver:port/siebel/app/application_name/enu
4. Close the Siebel tab, switch to new tab, wait for +3s, and then past the Siebel URL and hit enter
5. You should get the above Session Warning Message

Note: If the step 4 is quickly executed the reported behavior is not reproduced.
