Idle session timeout at OIF is not happening and user gets automatically re-directed to SP.

In the OIF 11gR1 setup integrated with OAM11gR1 where OIF acts as an Identity Provider. The OIF is front ended with a web-server where-in webgate is installed.

When user access SP link (SP-initiated SSO) and gets re-directed to OIF and gets an SSO login page. User enter the credentials, is able to login and OIF sends the SAML response to SP.

Now, at SP side, if user session remains inactive for more than 30 min, user is getting redirected back to OIF IdPserver. At this point ideally user should be thrown a login page as in webgate profile, Idle session timeout set to 1800 sec (i.e 30 min) but this is not happening. After redirection to OIF IdP server, SAML response gets automatically generated and user is navigated back to SP.
