WSAD session timeout

 I deployed my application using WSAD5.1.0.
 Its a web based application using STRUTS framework. If my browser is idle for sometime
 and if I test my application again, I'm getting NullPointerException.
 I did set my <session-timeout> as 0 in my web.xml. Even though, I'm getting nullpointer
 in my application.
 So to avoid, I have to relogin in my application. My application does not
 check for any timeout. Is there anything else I need to set in my config ? (I checked WSAD admin
 console for timeout setting but I didn't find anything)
 Any idea ?
