Ever since upgrading from 4.4.2 (both on Linux and Windows w/ Apache) we're receiving the following error:

Notice: A session had already been started - ignoring session_start()

We have already checked session.auto_start and this is off. In addition, I don't actually have two sessions initiating.  

Also, we've posted in several forums before stopping here.

Note, that when I DOWNGRADE to version 4.4.2 this issue goes away as well. Is this a bug or feature by design?   

It sounds like other users have had this issue too in previous versions.

Reproduce code:

session_start(); // start session.


Expected result:
Is this by design or a bug?  If so, why does it keep changing back and forth?  This was also true between previous versions of PHP.
