You lucky one. :)

Serious question: Do you have several hundred users on your server and you
have RC just installed but probably not widely used, because your several
hundred users are mainly or exclusively using their local mail client (as
most of the subscribers to this list, given the "User-Agent" and "X-Mailer"
headers I'm seeing)...? Or are these several hundred users really using RC
only and all day?

I'm using RC only and all day, no local mail client installed at all, that
may be a difference.

And if all of your users should be using RC only and all day (which would
surprise me), how can you be sure that they do not experience any session
timeouts at all? Because your log files are telling you that, or just
because they don't report anything? If the latter - well ... users, you
know? ;)

At least, there have been several reports of session timeouts from several
other users/administrators besides me here. So there seems to be an issue.

Well, that's not 0.7.2 stable then, right?
