Comment (by azaozz):

 I'm still unsure if a whitelist approach is best here. Showing login
 expiration warnings inconsistently is not that good UX. Cases where the
 user is blocked by the modal from accessing the screen in a critical
 moment are quite rare but may happen on any screen.

 In that terms a better solution would be to always show the Close button.
 Currently it is always shown in the fallback text version (the login form
 is on another domain) so the user can close the modal after logging in
 from another tab/window.

 If the modal is closed before the user logs in, i.e. the user ignored it,
 it will reopen on the next check. Currently the check runs every 5 min. on
 most screens. If heartbeat is connecting for other reasons, a check is
 done too. Can remove that and leave it to only check every 5 min. This
 will be enough time to "not bother" the user if he/she ignored it but
 alert them that the login has expired.
