This is a defect. Since the user does not have a valid session, indeed, the session could not be logged out, but it is also true that the user has no proper session, and that's the state the user is requesting, thus, an appropriate message should be returned rather than a 500 error.




Upgrade the Policy Server to 12.8SP7 to fix this issue (1).
