When the continuations expire. The _k you see in the URL is the unique
ID of the continuation or "page view". The default is to keep 20
around (which is 10 pages, really: 1 continuation for callback
handling and one for rendering) to allow some backtracking and they
expire based on a Least Recently Used algorithm. Obviously when the
session expires, all of its continuations also expire.
