In mono 1.9.1 the session timeout is taken from the start. So, when session
timeout is set to default 20 minutes, after 20 minutes from the start the
session is killed, no matter if the user is still using the application.

Session timeout should be seen as idle timeout. When there is no request done
during 20 minutes, the session is timed out. This is also how it was working in
1.2.6 and on iis.

This bug is hard for our applications, because our users uses the application
for e.g. the whole day, so setting the timeout to 20 minutes cause them to
logon every 20 minutes, independent if they are still in the application

- start xsp in the testweb folder in attached archive
- run /index.aspx?start=1 - session created
- run /index.aspx and refresh this page each 10 seconds
- after a minute the session is expired, but should not, because we have not
been idle for a minute.
