DownloadContentServlet session timeout

Hi,

I am using the Web Services API to get a ticket without using the web-client login screen.

As configured in the authentication-context-service.xml file by default (Community Alfresco 2.1), the ticket should not expire.

But the DownloadContentServlet will timeout if the period of inactivity exceeds the alfresco session-timeout value in the web.xml.

I am talking about a request like the following:
/alfresco/download/attach/workspace/SpacesStore/0000-0000-0000-0000/myfile.pdf?ticket=1234567890
see (http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/URL_Addressability#Ticket_URL_Argument)

Is this the desirable behavior?

In my opinion, the ticket should not expire as long as I don't invoke the endSession method or tell alfresco to do so by configuring the authentication-context-service.xml file otherwise.

What do you think?

Thanks!
