tomcat 5.0 session related problem

hi all,

I have created a small application , which counts the total number of users entered the application(TU), and total current users(CU).

logic is:
I have created 2 context attributes - TU and CU initialized to zero.
and 1 session attribute with username -- "user"
When the user login,i am writing a listner class with overridden method sessionCreated(HttpSessionEvent). Within this method reading the CU and TU ,
and increment it by one.

testing: I will open one browser and make user to login. At that time CU and TU is incremented to 1.
I open onather browser and make one user to login... according to logic CU and TU should increment to 2, but it in not incrementing .why?

when I see the is just replacing the attribute "user" with new user login instead invoking the sessionCreated() method. [ using listeners ]

And the same program i tried with other computer .. its working fine.

Please suggest me ....something whether is it problem with Tomcat in handling the request{session in tomcat 5.0 ..are they fixed in next version}?
