This has already been found and discussed. Alec created a new bug in trac
and Thomas already created some bugfixes.
There are other threads concerning session timeouts/keep-alive problems - I
suggest you read them, too.

And yes, the bugfixes can be applied to your 0.7.2 installation without
having to install a new (svn?) Roundcube.
I'm currently parallel-testing stable 0.7.2 Roundcube, one with the
patches, one without. But no results so far as these session failures occur
randomly, at least on my installation.
