session_register - session_is_registered
doesn't work for global variables with
"register_globals = on" on the sparc arch.

The set.php - get.php scripts at the end of this report
works just fine om my Debian GNU/Linux 3.0, kernel 2.4.18
on i386, but doesnt work on my Debian GNU/Linux 3.0, kernel 2.2.17 on sparc.

Both machines runs Apache 1.3.24 and PHP 4.1.2 and got identical php.ini files.

The scripts:
--- set.php ---------------------------------------------
$cookie_params = session_get_cookie_params();
$globvar= true;
session_register ('globvar');
print '<A HREF="get.php">get.php</A>';

--- get.php ---------------------------------------------
if(session_is_registered('globvar')) { 
        print 'ok';
} else {
        print 'failed';

On the i386 I get ok and on the sparc failed.

Does your sparc installation use a 64bit data model?

Nope, it's an old Sparc Station 5 (sun4m).
It's now upgraded with a 2.4.18 kernel ... same result.

Here is my test code, I get the same problem

print " <-- before SID is ".SID." and after -->";
$_SESSION['blah'] = "foo";
<br><a href="test.php?<?php echo SID?>">blah</a><p>

The result is always the first var_dump is NULL, SID is blank and the second var_dump looks like what it should.  Testing the same script on 4.2.1 alpha arch it works as is expected.
