I respectfully disagree.  A number of people (myself included) have reproduced
this bug, quite repeatedly.  I have a very reproducable testcase onsite, I am
just unable to provide our whole application to a third party.  What we have
been unable to provide is a self-contained testcase to reproduce this issue.

I don't feel this is an issue that only one person has been dealing with--that
would justify closing it.  This issue has been seen on a number of environments,
using entirely different applications.

The workaround is to:
1) Make a container object to hold the tomcat session and track the inactivity
manually
2) Write a background thread to invalidate the session once it times out.

I view this as a very serious bug in tomcat, even if it's difficult to
reproduce.  I'm not blaming anyone or saying that it needs to get fixed--you
can't very well fix an issue you can't reproduce, but closing it when it still
exists doesn't seem like a good idea.
