Hello Warren
your *.yml will never disappear , you can remove it with simple crontab 
or use other session engine ( like Redis )

I do not use session_expires but a simple hook

hook 'before' => sub {

my $sessionDuration = 14400;  # in second

if (session('Time') && session('Time') + $sessionDuration < time()) {
                 var requested_path => request->path_info;


get '/disconnect' => sub {
                 my $time     = session('Time');
                 my $username = session('username');

But, if a session times out because it’s abandoned, my connection object never gets closed.  (I’ve put a log message in its DESTROY method, and it never occurs.)
