Do you know if your hosting company has a multi-webserver setup?  If so,
do they have a shared /tmp directory (where PHP stores session
information), or is it unique to each server?  If your hosting company
has many different webservers, each reload might hit a different one,
and each may or may not have your session information in its /tmp

A solution is to write your own session handlers, using a database, the
shared portion of the filesystem, or some other method of preserving the

Otherwise, have you checked with your hosting company to see if this is
a common issue that their customers have?
