Bug description:  session variables not kept when using $HTTP_SESSION_VARS and 


i have this (sample) script:


if (!session_is_registered("totalscore")) {
        $totalscore = 0;
//      $HTTP_SESSION_VARS["totalscore"] = 0;
} else {
//              $HTTP_SESSION_VARS["totalscore"] += 10;
                $totalscore += 10;

$line = session_id() . "<br>\nScore:" . $totalscore;
//$line = session_id() . "<br>\nScore:" . $HTTP_SESSION_VARS["totalscore"];

<?php echo $line ?>

If register_globals is On, everything works fine using the $totalscore global. But, if 
you change the comments, and use $HTTP_SESSION_VARS[] the sessiondata (totalscore) 
stays undefined.

If i change register_globals to Off (and restarting apache), the globals (surprise) 
don't work anymore, but $HTTP_SESSION_VARS do.

This is in contrast with the manual, saying that if register_globals is On, both 
$HTTP_SESSION_VARS and the global reference the same value.
