Is the garbage collector function for sessions working?
I have put the gc probability to 1, a lifetime of session of 1 second (minute?).
But there's still session's file on my hard drive.
I have made several tests and not even one of them have been deleted.

Could you tell me if it is a known issue.

Propability 1 means: 1% propability that the garbage
collection starts. So it hardly ever happens.

Try changing the propability to 100 (= 100%) 
and you'll see that now the session files are
deleted every every time you reload the page
having 'session_start()' in it.

Not a bug.
