    Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
    Unfortunately you are not using a current version of PHP --
    the problem might already be fixed. Please download a new
    PHP version from [url]http://www.php.net/downloads.php[/url]

    If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
    versions of PHP, please change the PHP version on this bug report
    to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open".
    Again, thank you for your continued support of PHP.

    We're already at 4.3.3 in which many session bugs have been fixed
    (compared to 4.2.3).

    Description:
    ------------
    Problem: You have a main window that manipulates and diplays data from
    a $_SESSION array. You cannot open a popup window, then manipulate your
    sessions in the main window, then reload your popup window without
    corrupting your session.

    At first glance, it seems to work right, but once you start testing,
    you realize that it just doesn't work. Sometimes you get the correct
    data, usually you don't. I'm using version 4.2.3 (yes i
    know...upgrade), but I originally saw this reported as a bug in an
    earlier PHP version and the PHP team said it wasn't a bug, not because
    they tested it, but because they said it was impossible for it to
    happen due to the way PHP is written because PHP serializes all session
    requests, locks the sessions..blah, blah, blah. I can therefore, only
    assume that the bug still exists in later versions as it is present in
    version 4.2.3 and I've found no reports of it being fixed or even
    acknowledged as a bug. I found at least one other person on
    phpbuilder.com who had the same problem and finally solved it by giving
    up on sessions and passing his data in a query string.

    Config Info:

    Env: i386-redhat-linux-gnu

    './configure' '--prefix=/usr/local/'
    '--with-apache=../../new_apache/apache_1.3.27'

    It's not our problem if you can't upgrade.
    And sessions work just fine. You're either doing something
    wrong or there was some bug fixed, related/not related to sessions.

    After 2 weeks of searching, I have not found one report of this being
    fixed in any PHP version. I am not able to upgrade my version of PHP to
    test this on newer versions. Please do not close this issue until
    someone has.
