You might look through the mailling list archives.  I know that Avi 
commented on this a couple times.  I put my DB disconnect code in 
unregistered and it works pretty well.  I haven't noticed Seaside being 
very aggressive at "unregistering" sessions but it does happen 
eventually.  I have one app that is hardly every used :-( and it has 
sessions whose last access time is several days ago but my more heavily 
used apps never keep expired sessions around for very long.  I don't 
think Seaside trys to expire sessions during page access handling so an 
idle server is bound to have sessions hanging around.  I believe there 
is a way to fork a process to check at fixed time intevals, for example, 
so as to be more aggressive about session reclamation.  Again, Avi's 
previous postings my shed some light on this topic.
