Is there anything on your page (or being called by your page) which uses
session information? I would GUESS that if you refer to session and the
session isn't loaded that its loaded on demand at that point - but this is
just a GUESS.

A different approach, if you want the session to expire then does this mean
that you want the page to stop updating after say 20 minutes? If so you
could count the number of times the page has refreshed (possibly by adding a
parameter to the refresh url), and simply stop refreshing once you've
reached your desired limit. I know this isn't the same as using the session
timeout, but it might do the trick.

Hope this helps.
