[Seaside] Using updater on expired sessions?

I haven't looked at scriptaculous documentation yet, but wouldn't timeouts
trigger the onError handler?

And keeping the page from expiring isn't really an option in my case. This
is a financial application and we're intentionally keeping the inactivity
period very low before the expiry kicks in. What I think I may do for now,
is validate the contents of the div in the onSuccess and bail out of the
whole page if its not tagged properly. If you can think of a better way,
please share as it seems like this would be a typical scenario for a lot of
developers out there.

Keep up the good work!

That can be fixed, but I am not sure what should happen in case of a

Put a periodical updater into the page that calls the server every
couple of minutes. This should avoid the session to time-out as long
as the browser window is open.
