Hi Dan,

You could work around this issue:

If you have control over the application running on the kiosk computer you can add the following javascript to the logout button (I assume there is some kind of logout button):
var xmlhttp = new XMLHTTPRequest();"GET", "/Shibboleth.sso/Logout", true);
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = function()
   if(xmlhttp.readyState == 4 && xmlhttp.status == 200)

I did this on an application we are running and it works like a charm. Hope that could be a valid option for you.
