Prevent session extension for polling system messages #3632
I'm kind of undecided about this change: on one hand it fixes the problem when the user does not interact with the system messages, but on the other it does not extend the session when the user is moving through the pages.
I guess the main problem is that we use this action both in automatic poll and when a manual interaction occurs (and that's not the case for other actions where we use
fetchPeriodically, I think). Any ideas if there's a better way we can fix this?
It's rather unlikely that a user will only click through the system messages related functionality for 15 minutes (or however long the session timeout is), so I guess this will not be a problem in practice.
