Now I got it, apparently "session" is indeed just written when an
error/timeout occurs. In the middle of composing a message (and if I'm not
totally wrong, exactly in the moment the autosave routine should have saved
the message), a session timeout just occurred again (grmpf!), and I found a
log "session" with this content:

> [02-May-2012 23:10:59 +0200]: Session authentication failed for dnoqrj84a3pds30sk9h3ib0410; invalid auth cookie sent
> [02-May-2012 23:11:00 +0200]: Aborted session dnoqrj84a3pds30sk9h3ib0410; no valid session data found
> [02-May-2012 23:11:01 +0200]: Aborted session dnoqrj84a3pds30sk9h3ib0410; no valid session data found

Does that help...? If not, what more can I do next time?

Searched the whole HD for a file containing "dnoqrj84a3pds30sk9h3ib0410" in
the name, but with no success. A HD-wide search for a file containing the
string "dnoqrj84a3pds30sk9h3ib0410" would have taken ages. In which
directory should I look (Win7/64)? Wouldn't it be helpful to indicate the
file name (and directory) of the relevant cookie in the session log? Then I
could probably have attached it to this mail (although I don't know if this
might help).

While I'm typing this, another session timeout in the middle of composing
this specific message occured again. The session log says:

> [02-May-2012 23:45:15 +0200]: Session authentication failed for 3bnr138hd6pj2p1sfbhm27uod1; invalid auth cookie sent
> [02-May-2012 23:45:17 +0200]: Aborted session 3bnr138hd6pj2p1sfbhm27uod1; no valid session data found

So much for now,
