Yes, overall, a 99% solution is all we can hope for. But all I'm saying is
why even check the IP address? What added security does this give you?

The hard part is hijacking the session ID. If you can figure out someone's
session ID, then I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be hard to figure out their IP
and browser type, also.

It's not going to stop someone who is dedicated and just adds in extra
checks that are 99.9% _always_ the same for regular users. and if they are
different, you still can't tell if it's a hacker at a different IP address
or a user who just switched IP addresses.
