G'day, Most likely they haven't pointed it to the right place (or maybe permissions? Doubt it would give this error for that).
Session information is usually stored in /tmp on the hosting server (and on unix servers /tmp is actually a disk partition with a set size). There are a lot of applications on a hosting server that might use /tmp to store temporary files, so I suppose it is possible that something has filled /tmp up and PHP simply can't write to it because there is no where to write to! Call your host is my advice.
