Sun Ray sessions are identified by "tokens". A token can be a smartcard 
or an authenticated username (usually without smartcard). If one user 
uses multiple smartcards or uses card and cardless sessions, they get 
multiple sessions. I know of use cases where that is used to have 
multiple sessions for different purposes. Or cardless use may be a 
fallback, when you forgot the card elsewhere.
