Strange session timeout problem?

In each action's execute method I test for the exsistance of a session object that is set at app start up. This will not be present if the session timed out so the plan is like this -

SecurityFlags_DTO oSec = (SecurityFlags_DTO)session.getAttribute("sec");

return (mapping.findForward("startup"));

The trouble is this forward just presents a blank page in the browser, no errors nothing!

The forward "startup" looks like this -

<forward name="startup" path="/"/>

& should restart the app in the correct action i.e

Any ideas?

this is reallky spooky!

Is your problem the Session or the Forward???
If it`s the foward, post some code.
