Bug Type: *Session related
Operating system: FreeBSD 3.0-RELEASE #5
PHP Version: 4.0.5
Description: Browsers other then IE write empty session files to /tmp.


I've tried to get sessions working with version 4.0.1pl2 and version 4.0.5. What is 
the chance it will work with this release candidate? Isn't there another way to verify 
this problem? Can you change the description of this bug?

This works for me just fine with PHP 4.0.6RC3.
Could you please try it? You can find it here:

It isn't the browser that causes this behaviour, it's the protocol. When a php script 
that uses sessions is requested using HTTP/1.0, created session files are empty. When 
the same script is requested using HTTP/1.1 everything works fine.

Sample url:
Sample code:


echo session_id();

if(!isset($count)) {
  $count = 1;
else {

echo "<p>You've been here $count times.  Thanks!</p>";

And where does IE write them? What do you mean by 'empty session files'? As PHP is 
server-side, it's a bit impossible
to be browser that causes this behaviour.

Do you have any short example code of this?
