session.save_path appears to affect mysql functions

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

I was installing a script did not want to place session variables in
the standard php directory.

After changing the session_save_path in the scripts .htaccess file, the
mysql_connect stopped functioning,  function_exists('mysql_connect')
returned False. I suspect the whole mysql library stopped functioning.

Is this a known bug in PHP's mysql handling?
