The same as for a new request that has no session at all.  A valve
(Authenticator) will intercept the request before it reaches your
application and will display a login form.

A hibernate session and a servlet session are two different entities.
There is no relation between them.

No. We do not have your source code nor you stacktrace.

I would first find out how I got there. What is stacktrace of the call
when this issue happens and what is requested URL.

All filters are mentioned in stacktrace (full stacktrace is written to
the logs). It is easy to see whether your filter is there.
