destroyed on the server side

My code uses session when a user logs on and when a flash movie uses webservices to get data it destroys the session and the user is logged off.

If the session is destroyed on the server, it's highly unlikely it's caused by the client.  On the side, there are several ways of tracking a user's session, and Session variables aren't the best.  I'd definitely be looking for a problem in the web service itself rather than pointing the finger at Flash.
