Except that, if you don't send the Set-Cookie header again each time,
the cookie's expiration can't be updated - most people want a session
expiry to be extended with each request, so it times out the right
amount of time after the last request, rather than the last time the
session data was updated.

I think this is quite common and correct behaviour.
