Suggested fix to the problem.

Once mod_session saves a session (to cookie), the session expiration cannot be
reset - the only way to delete and re-create cookie anew. 

Accordingly to documentation:
"The SessionMaxAge directive defines a time limit for which a session will
remain valid. When a session is saved, this time limit is reset and an existing
session can be continued."
However tests and code inspection show that the expiry can be set just once and
later updates do not refresh the session.
Also, "Max-Age" value for the updated session cookie is not passed to a user

Please see the suggested fix attached.
