If you have session cookies disabled in your browser then you have to add
the session ID to the redirect. If you have your cookies enabled and you are
still losing the session then there must be some other problem.

no cookie compatible:

header("Location: http://someplace.com/somepage.php?PHPSESSID="; .
session_id() );

if you have session.use_trans_sid = 1 or you compiled
with --enable-trans-sid the session id will be automatically added to
relative get or post. Both links that are not a relative URI and header
redirects require that you manually append the session id to the query
string to keep the session without the need for a session cookie.
