As noted in a message I just sent (not arrived on the list yet), you can add
manditory client logic so clients kicked off because of another client
logging in are not allowed to automatically re-login without user
intervention, and to preferably display a popup telling the user the reason
they were logged off (i.e. another client has logged on.....).
