I have several friends running my forum system.( Two of my friends got the same session problems under PHP4.3.6. ( both sites are under heavy traffic ) They are using default session handler and default session settings( 1/100 chance to start garbage collector ). Session files are stored in a specified folder ( not /tmp ) but in single level ( with no "N;xxx" configured ) . We noticed that session files are not cleaned automatically. after 3 days, both sites got over 150,000 session files.  So now i have to write a cleaner for them to solve the problem temporarily. meanwhile the sites with PHP 4.3.5 or other previous verions are running very well.

Sites with this problem
Site 1:
OS: Windows 2000 
PHP 4.3.6

Site 2:
OS: Redhat as 3.0
PHP 4.3.6

Sites without this problem
Site 1:
OS: FreeBSD 5.1
PHP 4.3.1

Site 2:
OS: Redhat 9.0
PHP 4.3.5

Site 3:
OS: Redhat 9.0
PHP 4.3.4

All sites are running the same forum system.
