Storing any sort of login/auth data in cookies has regularly been panned
on this list. The preference seems to be to store whatever login/auth
information *must* be stored in the $_SESSION variable.

Well and good. My problem, however, is that I have multiple applications
in different tabs running on the same server, which may all use the same
sub-variables, like "username". As a result, they run into each other.
One application will think I'm logged in when I'm not logged in to that
application, but to another in the same browser on the same box.

So my question is how to prevent this using the standard PHP functions
relating to sessions. I'd like different applications in different tabs
on the same box/browser to have different sessions, so they don't share
