Try adding these lines to your Privoxy default.action file - one of
them should fix your problem.

  ===== begin ======
{ -crunch-all-cookies -filter -fast-redirects -hide-referer
-kill-popups -prevent-compression }


{+fast-redirects{check-decoded-url} -block}
  ===== end ======

I don't remember ever having a problem logging out of Yahoo using a 
browser with javascript disabled.  I did have a problem using Firefox
with everything enabled...  I think it was the 
that fixed the logout problem - but I'm not sure so I included all of
my privoxy rules for yahoo.
