I'm experiencing the random loss of sessiondata. (The same symptoms as in bug #19029 and in the comments of bug #19022).

While investigating this problem, I found out that the sessioncookie contains this value:

HTTP_COOKIE          = 1; PHPSESSID=f1faf3374d562e8738f64e7e7e030972;
pollvoted[1]=1;  (... some other data left out for privacy reasons);
PHPSESSID=842be4994a9c424fd7d4f9f8049aadc9

There are two different PHPSESSID cookies!

I wish I could, but it's a productionserver on which this occurs. Installing a snapshot for this site is too dangerous. Is there a patch for just this specific issue that I might try on our current source?

There is no patch because the session code has undergone major changes and revisions since the 4.2.2 release. Your best bet is to try to problematic code on a development server and see if the latest version of PHP still has this bug.

The problem persists with PHP 4.3. 

I've reconfigured some settings, and the cookie being sent is ok now, however, still the session data gets lost every once in a while. The strange thing is, if I look at the session file that got written, all data is there..

For Windows:
 
  http://snaps.php.net/win32/php4-win32-STABLE-latest.zip

And update the Version on this report to 4.3.2 if this happens with the snapshot too.
