Well my first thought is that the quickest solution is to just not use the ajax at all.
I'm not clearly picturing your process here, but if a <cfform...> tag has a normal action that does not use any ajax calls, then it should behave as you desire.
I'll keep trying and report back if I find anything. Thanks again for your reply.
This worked for me...
<cflayoutarea position="top" size="80" align="right">
<cfform name="logMeout" action="#CGI.script_name#" method="post" target="_top">
