[Bug 521624] Accounts should maintain the state of the ECLIPSESESSION

When accounts.eclipse.org was deployed, one of the requirements was to create an ECLIPSESESSION after a user logs-in to support our current infrastructure.
For example, the Bugzilla manager for committers validate your access based off your ECLIPSESESSION.
Accounts.eclipse.org also creates a local Drupal session which can expire after the ECLIPSESESSION.
Accounts.eclipse.org should be able to detect that the ECLIPSESESSION has expired for a currently logged-in user and create a new session or update the expiry date of the previous session.
The main issue is that the ECLIPSESESSION is only created when the user successfully enter information on our login form. As long, as the drupal session is valid, it won't try to re-validate the ECLIPSESESSION.
