Status on Users receive a 'TEMPORARY scope is unavailable' message on timed out session issue

I have tested this and sometimes have received the "TEMPORARY scope is unavailable" message when logged on from an extended period of time (see article below), BtBb article #: 000041501.


I am including Noelle Stephens on this...does anyone know if a fix might be included in CU1 for Q4 2015 or separate patch? 


There have been some postings on the listerv and I can see where this will be confusing for students staying logged on to get this message with no log out option.
