Can't Add a Extension to be Executed by session handling rule for checking invalid session

Hi, First off just wanted to say that you guys have been doing a great job with Burp, it pretty much covers 85 - 95% of my daily web app pentesting needs with the core functionalities. So my problem is exactly as stated in the title. I have an extension loaded with ISessionHandlingAction implemented, and the getActionName method returning "Refresh Midway Session". I have defined a session handling rule for checking if a session is invalid, using Burp's built-in rule, and at the very bottom of the "Session handling action editor" window, I checked the "After running the macro, invoke a Burp extension action handler", and specified my extension's action handler in the dropdown box. However, when I close the dialogue box, and reopens, the action handler is deselected. Any help with this matter would be appreciated.

Could you tell us what version of Burp you are using, and the version of Java that it uses (Help > Diagnostics)? Have you configured a macro to run when there is an invalid session?
