That's not a bad idea. If the browser doesn't support JavaScript, you could
also set it to a certain number of reloads of the dummy page, with a
parameter (?OpenDocument&count=x). It would take a bit more programming on
the server side, but not very difficult. So you just check what parameter
count was set to, and then increment it. When it reaches a predetermined
value, you just dont enter the refresh meta tag.

That is a great idea.
Building on that you could also stop the load after a long period of time
by loading a blank page into the frameset after say an hour or so.  Once
done the normal session timeout would happen.  On the parent page, since
Rick is using JavaScript:

<form id="blankForm" name="blankForm" action="blank.html"
var stopReloadPeriod=3600000

would stop the meta refresh page after an hour.

  I never use Domino Designer Framesets for web apps if I don't have to.
  are too limited. You can create a HTML frameset using a Page, Form or
  Document, depending on your needs. Use passthrough HTML, brackets or make
  the form or page content HTML.

  I have used both a Page, a Form and a Document for the dummy page, for
  different needs. It doesn't have to contain more than a valid HTML page
  with the meta tag, since it won't be visible

  This is an example of a frameset I've used. There are two frames, and the
  size of the refresh frame is set to *, while the other frame is set to
  <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
  <title>Title here</title>
  <frameset framespacing="0" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0"
  border="false" rows="*,100%">
        <frame name="refresh" src="webpages/refresh" scrolling=No
  frameborder=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 noresize>
        <frame name="pviewer" src="webpages/home" scrolling=Auto
  frameborder=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 noresize>

  This is an example of the "refresh" web page:
  <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
  <title>Dummy page</title>
  <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="300; url=refresh">
  <body text="#000000" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
