Jira 7 change the session timeout

After update to Jira 7 the session timeout setting doesn't work anymore. We have modify the file web.xml as described at https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira063/changing-the-default-session-timeout-683542392.html. With the older Jira Version it worked perfekt, but now the users get round about 1 hour without working the message: Session timeout. Is there any other parameter, except in the file web.xml, which needs to be changed?

Im using 7.2.4 and still encounter this problem. I know the default is 300 minutes but the session expires within minutes.
