I thought that when register_globals = off, all you need is 
session_start() at the top of every page and from then on 
session_register() isn't even needed.  I also thought that in fact it 
was safer to use $_SESSION['variablename'] than to use 
session_register() each time (well, not safer, but a better habit for 
the register_globals = off crowd).

I'm not disagreeing with you, just asking for clarification.  I base 
this on what I've read in the PHP manual on using session variables 
(there are some indented blockquotes that suggest this technique for 
PHP4.1-using register_globals=off-turning PHP coders).
