I've just made a test, after adding the "* 24".
I changed MythWeb settings at 16:40 and the cookie expiration date for
"mythweb_id" at "/" was "2006-05-01 16:40:05", as expected.
Then I closed the browser, waited 3 minutes, opened the browser, went to
MythWeb and "Upcoming recordings".
Looking at the same cookie as before, it still has the same expiration
date and time. So date/time wasn't refreshed by simply surfing MythWeb.
Then I changed my settings again and still the date and time of the
cookie did not change.
This is the behavior, I observed under 0.18, too.
So, it is not a matter of bumping up the timeouts, but of refreshing the
date and time on each visit.
I am using Firefox 1.5 under Linux and my MythWeb is at
"http://192.168.0.7:81/mythweb/" on another computer.
