Session Memory Leek?

Perry L. Jones
I have been trying to figure this out for days now and can't seem to
find the solution?  Someone please give me guidance or I am going to cry!

I have a server application using session caching.  I have used the
following function to setup session caching:

SSL_CTX_set_session_id_context( ctx, sessionIdContext, sIdLen);
SSL_CTX_set_session_cache_mode( ctx,  
SSL_CTX_set_timeout( ctx, sessionCacheTimeout );
SSL_CTX_sess_set_new_cb( ctx, NewSessionCallBack );
SSL_CTX_sess_set_remove_cb( ctx, RemoveSessionCallBack );
SSL_CTX_sess_set_get_cb( ctx, GetSessionCallBack );

If the client connects with a session the GetSessionCallBack function is
called and loads the session from a file on disk.

session = PEM_read_bio_SSL_SESSION( bio, NULL, NULL, cachePassword );
retrun session;

If the session has expired then it looks like the session is not freed
before the connection  renegotiate a new session?

Should I check in the GetSessionCallBack if a session has already
expired before returning it or do I need to call something else to clean
this session up?

Re: Session Memory Leek?

What about the 'copy' parameter og get_session_cb() ?
Probably you're using it, but haven't noticed in your question...
