If a session handler is misconfigured (e.g. bad path in session.save_path) and fails to start, the SessionHandler::read(string id) method will call into handler whose PS_OPEN_FUNC() previously returned FAILURE.
The expectation is that if a handler's PS_OPEN_FUNC() returns FAILURE, it will not receive any subsequent PS_READ_FUNC()/PS_WRITE_FUNC()/PS_CLOSE_FUNC()/PS_DESTROY_FUNC() calls.

Looks like coming through the SessionHandler::read(string id) method is continuing to call PS(default_mod)->s_read even though ->s_open failed.  I believe this is because the PS(mod_user_is_open) is being set to 1, despite the fact that the ->s_open failed.

Test script:
Assuming session.handler = wincache and session.save_path = "C:\doesNotExist\banana":


class WincacheSessionHandler extends SessionHandler {
  public function read($session_id) {
    $data = parent::read($session_id);

// Initialize the storage
$handler = new WincacheSessionHandler();
session_set_save_handler($handler, true);


print "<html><body>WORKS</body></html>";

Expected result:
php-cgi.exe should not AV.  It especially should not AV in wincache's PS_READ_FUNC() implementation.

Actual result:
