unexpected session timeouts in asp.net

Hello my dear colleagues,

Our app has a very strange issue. Session timeout is set to 3 days, but it times out at any random interval (mostly in a couple of hours). This is driving everyone crazy.

Has anybody had this kind of problem before? This is an intranet application with proxy server in place. Every request has to go through proxy. There's also one peculiar thing about this app. In web.config, it has impersonation set to "Windows", but when you actually put your credentials in, and click on "logon" button, it uses "Forms Authentication" methods to authenticate the user. Is this normal?
