Force Tomcat to forget all sessions

Hi,
i've been fiddling around with the max session length in the web.xml of my app.
Right when the duration was REAL long ( i won't tell you howwwww long ) some misguided souls opened about 15 session.
I reduced the duration, restarted tomcat but these session keep sticking to my so(u)l(e).
They should have expired hours ago, on every restart they appear again.
Is there a way to FORCE the termination of ALL sessions and - where does tomcat store this stuff between reloads?
Thank you,
Jeffrey [[sitting and waiting]...]

Either use the manager app to stop that context, or just shut down the server. Then navigate to %tomcat home%/work/.../contextName and delete the SESSIONS.ser file.
(my ... is Standalone/localhost)
