ASP.NET Membership - stop redirection to last page on login.

When using ASP.NET Membership if a user lets his system go idle and the login expires then the next request will force the user to the Login page.  The Url then contains a redirect parameter like this...

http://localhost/CARS/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fCARS%2fAgreements.aspx

Then when the user logs in again it takes them to the last page they were on.

I can see how this could potentially be a handy feature.  But is there any way to turn it off?

You cannot override the ReturnURL behavior.  It is integrated into the membership mode.  However, you can work around the behavior.

In your login.aspx page, you can inspect the value of ReturnUrl in the Request.  If it contains a value, then simply redirect to the login page without the return url string.

Here is a code snippet:
      if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(Request["ReturnUrl"])) {
        Response.Redirect("Login.aspx");
      }

Yes, I've already thought about this as a solution.  I'm just surprised that there isn't a built in way to override as it seems like a common enough configuration need.

If anyone else has any input on this I'm going to keep this question open for a while.  Otherwise I'll just award you full points.

Thanks.
