Default Losing a session variable


Currently there is a web user that always gets an error on our
application due to a missing session variable. All other session
variables are still in tact, but this one seems to disappear and hence
the user can no longer access everything on the site.

Any ideas as to where this value goes? I've checked my ASP code and
saw nothing that would re-set this variable's value. Moreover, only a couple of
users experience this problem

Any input would be much appreciated.

In regards to session, it is normally ALWAYS something in code or something happening with a server. If all the session values were dropped then I could say that the session was timing out but, in this case, it seems that you have some buggy code (based on the description of the problem).

Something tells me its an ampersand in an XML string, I am really having trouble replicating it though. I wish I could just call the user up and tell him show me what ur doing. I've tried impersonating him on the production site, but I still havent had any luck with the replication.
