Whats Going On-
on every page request FSSession loads up its data(_v_data) from the fs.
At the beg. of transaction commit FSSession opens up a temp file and
dumps its data to it. at the end of a transaction commit.. actually now
that i think about it is the second pass of Zope's two-phase commit. On
the second phase of the commit FSSession tries to copy this temp file
(not a proper one in unix terms just a file with .tmp , portability)
over to the actual file. an error in the second phase of the two-phase
commit basically signals to zope that something seriously bad has
happened and it disallows any commits to transaction aware objects
(ZODB, FSSession,etc). 

if this is disjointed i apologize i'm sleep deprived.

Possible Fixes-
hmmm. i'm not exactly sure you since had fssession up and running
before... i know i've had this error before... but i can't remember
right now why... oh yeah i was developing an FSSession derivative
product...

hmmm... make sure the directory exists (Zope/Var/FSSession) and has the
proper permissions on it. 

if that doesn't work.... hmmm... contact Pavlos.


Cheers
