Just use ini_set() to set a different session.save_path() than what's in
your PHP.ini. then the garbage collector won't touch it. Write your own
script to do the deleting and call whatever functions you need. Add that
to your cron script to run every hour or day, and you're good to go. You
made your own garbage collector. 

I'm going to have to do this for a sourceforge site I have. I started a
thread about this on the PHP board at Devshed and someone posted a
sample function to handle the cleanup.
