checkSession not refreshing SSO cookie

When calling Auth0.js’s checkSession() function, and successfully receiving a new access_token, the Auth0 SSO session/cookie is not getting refreshed/extended. That it, it is timing out after the length of time specified in the “SSO Cookie Timeout” setting measured from the initial login, not measured from the latest call to checkSession().

Is this intended? Is there a way to refresh/extend the SSO session without interrupting a SPA?

I saw the following information in a forum post from a year ago: “there’s an already known issue that we are aware and intend to fix that is about the authentication method to get refreshed tokens based on a session is not renewing the idle timeout which could result in failure to get refreshed tokens sooner than the maximum timeout.” but I can’t find any more information on it.
