keepalive timeout?

Hi everybody,
Accodring to the man page, default sess_timeout value is 5 seconds:

              Units: seconds Default: 5

But with a network capture you can see the time between the first
packet and the last one is aproximately as 10 seconds. Futhermore, if
you set sess_timeout to, for instance, 4 seconds, in the network
capture you get exactly that.

I know that sess_timeout is not exactly that, but i'm assuming a
really quick request so it does not take more than a few milliseconds

Can you correct the value that is wrong, the man page or the code?
