Suppose we have a load balancer with 3 instances.
1. A section, s1, is created in instance 1 for a given app.
2. There is a network issue. instance 1 is not available in the network.
3. Subsequent requests go to instance 2.
4. The session, s1, in instance 1 is still in memory and will be expired, and then removed.
This will cause an issue.

The same issue is in HA SSO.

In case of HA SSO, one also need versioning in order to solve the problem. This has been filed as issue GLASSFISH-16377 and the fixed has been checkin to trunk.

This really requires a new feature to be implemented in shoal. Basically, it requires shoal to maintain info about which instance is the owning instance of a session. This allows shoal to ignore stale 'remove-expire" commands.

This is a new feature and hence deferring it to 3.1-next
