I am not sure if expire cleans up a session when called but...

Define #unregistered in your session. #unregistered is called when a  
session is destroyed. Expired sessions are destroyed every 20th time  
(I think) a new session is created.

If you need something that does not allow your expired sessions to  
linger around so much you can run a background process that checks  
for expired sessions. There was an example posted on this list a  
while ago and I can't seem to locate it.

Would someone be able to post example code of a background reaper  
process for seaside sessions ?
