Cookie Expiry & Login Popup causes loss of any work currently busy with

This is the most annoying thing in 5.x I will often start working on a post, do some extensive work and then very annoyingly at some point get a login popup due to the cookie having expired.

Results after this happens is being taken to a very nasty page saying "That link is no longer available" (< something like that) result: all work lost.

It's now happened to me a number of times and I do not recall having this on 4.x and prior versions.

If I actually start working inside Admin even 5 minutes before a cookie is due to expire, the system should be smart enough to detect I am actually an Admin and I am currently active and it should extend the cookie. Unless I can somehow bypass this annoying behavior myself?

Any update on this bug? A new version was released recently but this bug remains. It's a simple cookie setting isn't it?
