The application shouldn't have anything to do with it... You should be
able to run arbitrary code and still have it interrupted.  There could be
a special signal that's sent when the user deauthenticates, but shortly
after, it should kill -9 the processes.  Otherwise, what's to stop people
from bringing in arbitrary programs that ignore deauthentication?
