 The Django application can use the following API:
-.. function:: openid2rp_django.auth.preAuthenticate(uri, answer_url, sreg = (('nickname', 'email'), ()), ax = ((, openid2rp.AX.first, openid2rp.AX.last), ())) -> response
+.. function:: openid2rp_django.auth.preAuthenticate(uri, answer_url, sreg = (('nickname', 'email'), ()), ax = ((, openid2rp.AX.first, openid2rp.AX.last), ()),reuse_session = True) -> response
 ``uri`` is the OpenID URI input from the user. ``answer_url`` is the
 absolute address of the view that will later call
 information attributes from the authentication provider. Check the
 openid2rp and OpenID documentation for details.
+``reuse_session`` is intended as possibility for the application to
+work around broken OpenID providers. It disables the re-using of
+OpenID sessions for the given claim. If your provider sends an
+'openid.invalidate_handle' parameter in the returning request,
+and the OpenID authentication ends with a session error,
+try to set this to 'False'. Normally, you don't need to touch
+this parameter.
 The result is the ``HttpResponse`` object you should directly
 return from the view code after calling ``preAuthenticate``. It
 contains a 307 redirection to the authentication provider URL, so that
