Was doing some debugging on our session class and wanted to start from scratch on 
a few tests so we came up with the following, just to see how frequently we his 
collisions using the default session configs.

It appears that session_regenerate_id quits regenerating after 114 runs, after 
which the function simply fails.

Test script:
$arr = array();

for( $i = 0; $i <= 100000; $i++ )
        $ses = session_id();
if(!session_regenerate_id(true) ) {
        echo "Session: ". $ses. "\n";
print_r( array_count_values( $arr ) );

Expected result:
Every call to session_regenerate_id and then to session_id would result in a new 
ID, and without limit.

I've test with my PHP 5.3 and trunk (with strict session patch) with cli. 
Although, I had to add ob_start() at the beginning, it executes all.

I guess you are using Apache web server to test it. Is there any crash log in 
your apache's error_log? If so, please submit backtrace.
