Session timeout and SQL server

P: n/a

We have a webapp that stores a Customer object and other information in
session variables, and a CustomerID in a cookie.
Since the app is being run on a webfarm, the session variables are being
stored in SQL server.

We don't want the app to 'timeout', so if a user comes back to a page and
the session has timed out, the CustomerID is read back from the cookie and
the object is recreated.

My question is, can this create a problem, i've noticed that even though the
session has expired, the same sessionID is used for the new session. Can
this cause a conflict in SQL server? In other words, does ASP.NET uses the
sessionID as a primary key to retrieve the session variables from SQL
Server? And if so, will it cause SQL Server to return data that was
theoretically in the old session?
