Changing session variables that are hashes as part of an object ($auth->auth[] from phplib) results in a segfault most of the time. 

It was still there switching back to php 4.1.0 .

Which save handler are you using?
I guess you are using mm save handler, right? I got the same segfault with it. :)
 [2002-01-23 02:21 UTC]
Yepp, i just gave file a try, and this works. 

Thanks for your hint. 

Nevertheless it would be nice to use mm again, someday :-)

Seems that i get no segfaults with file, but i am loosing some of its data. 

while $obj->ary(key=>value,key=>value); seems to survive, 
$obj->ary(key=>ary(key=>value)) seems to leave under certain circumstances. will try to get this into a small example.

It's not a solution, but a workaround.
You can try user, msession or session_pgsql save handler module.

User is compile in by default.
--with-msession for msession (And you need lib and daemon for it. Refer to manual)
session_pgsql is under PEAR CVS (/pear/PECL).

user/msession/session_pgsql works fine for me. (msession/session_pgsql are experimental modules)

Changed summay (Added "mm save handler")
 [2002-02-03 20:01 UTC]
Will be fixed soon.
 [2002-02-05 11:40 UTC]
This bug has been fixed in CVS.

I am getting zend_hash_internal_pointer_reset_ex -- Apache crashes while trying to load the custom session handlers (I am saving out to MySQL using Manuel Lemos' Metabase.)

Everything was working perfectly under PHP 4.0.5, Apache 1.3.19.

Crashes every time on PHP 4.1.1, Apache 1.3.22.

Win32 - PIII 600. 128mb ram.
