    j_security_check and session timeout issue

    K Hundley Newbie

      I've seen a lot of postings in regards to j_security_check problems but they all seem to be related to calling the login page directly. I am having an issue related to j_security_check after a session timeout occurs. Any help would be appreciated!
      Environment - jboss 4.0.4 GA, Seam 1.0.1 GA, ebj3, facelets

      A user logs into application then logs out and leaves the browser open. If they log back in after a session timeout the error: HTTP Status 400 - Invalid direct reference to form login page is displayed. However, if the user does a refresh on the browser after a session timeout then logs in - the error doesn't occur. The login form is not directly called anywhere in the application. When a user accesses MainPage and is not logged in they are redirected to the Login.jsp. Code snippets listed below. Any ideas why MainPage is not redirecting to Login.jsp after a session timeout occurs?
      Thanks!

      <session-config>
       <session-timeout>60</session-timeout>
