If globals are turned off when calling session_write_close() before a page redirect, any new session data is not getting written when using files. As a work around, if I use my on session handlers, I ignore the session_data that gets passed to my session_write function and create my own session data string like this:

function sess_write($key, $val)
	// SGH - 10/03/2002
	// globals off bug work around!!! The session data
	// passed in is not always updated with new values.
	// so we'll build our on session data from the
	// super global $_SESSION.
	$sesson_data = "";
	while (list($name, $value) = each($_SESSION))
	   $$name = $value['tmp_name'];

	   if (is_string($value))
	   	$session_data .= $name.'|s:'.strlen($value).':'.chr(34).$value.chr(34).";";
	   elseif (is_int($value))
	   	$session_data .= $name.'|i:'.$value.";";
	   elseif (is_float($value))
			$session_data .= $name.'|d:'.$value.";";
   $val = $session_data;

// more code ............

This works, however, seems to point to a PHP bug, since $val does not contain the new varibles until I set it to the string I created from the super global $_SESSION.
