What is the 'true' argument in session->getBeforeAuthUrl(true)?

I see some cases where it is


and some


What's the difference? Almost impossible to google for this question and I don't see any getters in the Customer/Model/Session.


$session->getBeforeAuthUrl(true) gives you the value for before_auth_url and deletes it from the session right after that. For reference see Mage_Core_Model_Session_Abstract_Varien::getData(). If you call the same method without true, you simply get the data value, but this will stay in the session for further use.
