Firstly you are right, I should have said "the option is quite deep in the menu system and thus may be easy for the typical user to overlook". However more importantly, I didn't not realise that clearing Authenticated Sessions also logged you out of the password manager, I had assumed it was just clearing HTTP/S Authentication sessions. This then is a more appropriate option as you have said. I have changed the defaults of what is cleared by going to
Preferences -> Privacy > Private Data > Settings
and unchecking everything except "Authenticated Sessions" and then I unchecked the option
Preferences -> Privacy > Private Data > Settings > Ask me before clearing private data

Now the [Ctrl+Shift+Del] option clears exactly what I want cleared.
Thank you!

Thank you so much for all the information. I was so excited when I got
to the part about the extension that I went ahead and created it before
reading on. I have attached the generated extension from your
instructions (with the author changed to yourself though :) ). I'm sure
it will be useful to somebody searching for that exact thing.

So now we have a good and clear use case for continued use of the
password manager combined with the option for clearing authenticated
sessions regardless of weather you are using an encrypted home folder.
So you're post actually put us back on topic. :)
