SP timing out after 60 minutes.

Our Shibboleth/SAML session is timing out after approximately 1 hour of
inactivity. I THOUGHT I had it configured to not timeout on inactivity, and
with a max session length of 24 hours, but obviously something is missing on
my part.

In Shibboleth2.xml I've set: 
In the Sessions tag, lifetime is 86400, and timeout is 0 (also tried 86400
with no change).
Also added a SessionCache tag with a cacheTimeout of 86400.

I also restarted the Shibboleth service, IIS and the server VM; to no
effect. Since it's an all-Flash front-end where one Flash file loaded into
another, there is no redirect to the IdP when a timeout occurs (because
there is no window.location=...). If I open another window and navigate
directly to one of those Flash files, the redirect does occur, indicating
the session is gone. 

Any idea on what I'm missing? Many thanks for any assistance. The tags are
below, for reference:

        <Sessions lifetime="86400" timeout="86400" relayState="ss:mem"
                  checkAddress="true" handlerSSL="true" cookieProps="https">
    <StorageService type="Memory" id="mem" cleanupInterval="900"/>
    <SessionCache type="StorageService" StorageService="mem"
                  cacheTimeout = "86400" cacheAllowance="900"
inprocTimeout="900" cleanupInterval="900"/>
