0044490: Remove overhead in URL's of authenticationClient & authenticationToken (multiserver related)

DescriptionThose 2 values in request are part of code added to multiserver/storeserver to allow cross-server validation of requests/session.

However it seems to have a couple of bugs in practice
- Request are seen in which the 2 values are added multiple times in a single request (seen repeated up to 21 times)
For example seen in livebuild
83844325E84C&authenticationToken=<token> now repeated 21 times

- Additionally those were only added to use in multi-server setup and should not be needed in single server install

Checking example big customer (19Q3)
- ca. 30% of GET URL length is only for those parameters (single copy of the values)
- 1.1M of 1.2M daily requests did have the token

As that causes some non-trivial overhead for (upload bandwidth, log-file volume, extra work for log-file parsing) maybe the feature should be completely disabled .
Steps To ReproduceConcrete steps how to get WebPOS to add those are not known.
However checking logs of livebuilds it seems quite typical to happen every day during usage
Proposed Solutiona.) Double check that those values are not useful with single-server setup
b.) Disable / remove the feature as being obsolete
