That's what all my apps do - they just check if the user is already logged in.

When there's no "user record" in session space, the login box gets
displayed, and as a response of user login the script checks the database.
It then reads all necessary data, including last login, user rights, etc
etc, from the DB, sometimes updates a user cookie, depending on the app. DB
is checked only once.
