You didn't miss anything - Johnny K made that up.  The OP (lightbulb432)
started the thread with the misconception that the server, not the
client, keeps track of cookies.  At no point did anyone mention infinite
session timeouts until Johnny K tried to use it to justify his "Tomcat
will run out of memory" comment.

This thread has also shown some confusion with the term "session
cookie", using it as if there were a set of cookies that Tomcat stores
in a session object (not true), rather than just a cookie with a
particular name that the browser keeps track of.
