Is session.auto_start on (i.e., non-zero)? If so, that's occurring
*before* your script is compiled, and will be using the value for
session.use_cookies that is in the php.ini file.

One possible way to get around this is to do your ini_set in a .htaccess
file instead (assuming htaccess files are enabled, and you're using

    php_value session.use_cookies 0

Try that and see if it works.
