Session lasting too long -- Session_End event firing way late !! ??

Why are my sessions lasting so long?
I have them set to 20 minute timeout in config file?
The Session_End event is getting called an hour or more sometimes--well
after the user has stopped interacting with my site.
Anyone have any insight?
Thanks in advance

Does the machine.config file have a setting that is overriding your
web.config file?

No.
I recopied the project and now it is again working as expected -- however, I
don't have any idea what caused the problem.
I think that the Session_End is called from a background thread, which has a
lower priority--but it makes little sense that most of the sessions were
lasting on the order of an hour longer than expected.
Is there anything that could cause this?

Hello Steve,

I am not sure of what happened without having the solid repro steps. Maybe there is something wrong in the system at then.
Under that situation, try to restart your web application by changing some code in global.asax or etc. That forces the web
app reloaded by asp.net and may resolve the problem.

If you could reproduce this problem next time, please post here with more information. We are glad to be of assistance.
Thanks very much.

Unfortunately, it has shown up again!!
Is there anything in particular that COULD cause this problem?
What MIGHT cause Session_End to be called about an hour LATER than the
Session Timeout value?
Thanks again.

Hello Steve,

Did it happened after some time repeatly? I suggest you install the latest framework and reinstall asp.net to see if the
problem could be resolved.

Thanks.
