PHP 4.3.2 & Session_start()

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I would like to know if anyone has come across a problem when getting
programs to work on PHP.

I am running a free webmail client called Squirrel that I downloaded from
the web and which works on Windows without any problems.

As soon as I log in to the application and it tries to create a session I
get an error message which says:

<b>Warning</b>:  session_start(): read returned less bytes than requested in
<b>/apache$root/php/scripts/squirrel/functions/global.php</b> on line
<b>295</b><br />

This line of global .php only has the session_start() function call and
nothing else.

I have found a few references on the web to a bug in PHP which causes this
error to be produced but I can run a script (Very simple one) with
start_session() successfully and the postings in this group previously do
not relate to this version. Also they don't say how to work around.

I am running:
Apache 1.3.26
PHP 4.3.2

Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give.

Kind regards,
Andoni OConchubhair.
