Description

In Chrome, if the On startup: Continue where I left off setting is enabled, sessions do not expire when the browser is closed even if the SESSION_EXPIRE_AT_BROWSER_CLOSE is enabled in settings.py.

Add a note about this in the Browser-length sessions vs. persistent sessions section of the session docs.
