well my use case is actually that I'm trying to use the gem
'gem-browse' which uses 'git web--browse'
I'm not using Apple Terminal, I'm using iTerm2 and there doesn't seem
to be a SECURITYSESSIONID set, at least echo didn't find any. But
neither did I find it on Apple Terminal either.

What troubles me is that this issue has only arisen recently, earlier
this worked fine for me
