I see two reasonable options here: either to check return of all
functions for CKR_USER_NOT_LOGGED_IN return code and retry them after
login or login always when CKF_LOGIN_REQUIRED is set. 

Moreover, not every time when you call login with NULL pin you are
required to put it in. In my case the library ask for it only time to
time (you can see my usecase here:
) probably because it keeps the session with card open.
