There is not really a way for osc to know that it should discard its

If the api decides to become incompatible to itself and choke on the
cookies that it gave out in the past, and replies with a "500 Internal
Server Error", it is a bug there.

Normally, it should answer with "401 Unauthorized", which triggers a
code path in the client which makes it reauthenticate (and save the new

A 500 leads to a "give up" response in the client. There is no provision
to retry things if a 500 is encountered.
