The session class I posted here has a single problem which will
cause that the session will get lost from time to time.
To fix the problem you cave to initialize the handler function
via session_set_save_handler after the session has been initialized.
The code looks simply like that:
// initialize session management
$session = new session_mm($_REQUEST);
Then everything should work fine.
