I thought I was having this problem when I discovered that my cookie
domain in php.ini was set. I host multiple virtual domains, and when I
was trying use sessions on a different domain they would always fail.
I have since changed the cookie domain to blank so it defaults to the
server which issues the cookie. Just something else to check for
anyone still having problems.

Noticed that most of these emails related to the $_Session not
maintaining the variable value occurred in 2002. Has this been
resolved? I saw mentioned it was resolved with 4.2.0. I am running
4.2.2 on an NT 5.0 system, and experiencing the same problem trying to
process form data from 3 forms. I combined the forms into 1, got rid of
the $_SESSION and just used $_POST, works perfectly. What's the deal,
is it fixed?
