New Session Created Randomly in Tomcat 5.0.28

1. I have a typical JSP-Servlet web application running on tomcat 5.0.28.
2. After successful login a new session is created. (in login.jsp) and user specific data is kept in session
3. User moves on through the application . Accesses a JSP ( e.g. PageWithHeavyJavascript.jsp), JavaScript code.
4. After doing some selections etc. PageWithHeavyJavascript.jsp, user browses another JSP ( e.g. plain.jsp) which *does not* have any session related code. At this point *sometimes* a NEW session is created. (By implementing HttpSessionListener I observed that the sessionCreated() methos is getting called everytime and sessionDestoryed() method is never getting called)
5. After lot of debugging I have observed that this happens when lot of Javascript code is called through clicks etc. new session is created. I am unable to link lot of Javascript calls with New session getting created.

Has anybody faced the same problem?
I would appreciate if you can shed some light on this issue... any hint/solution?

Please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place.
