    Thanks for the patch, but this does not solve the real problem and is not suitable for those with non-db backends. We'll try to solve bug 1703921 "the right way". I'll leave this patch here for now for others wishing to use this workarond until we've solved the real bug.

    I don't really know, but this bug might really by a PHP or perhaps an Apache problem.

    It also might have a lot to do with the nature of our platform. We serve about 13000
    users a day, running SquirrelMail, Apache2, PHP, Cyrus and Postfix all on a single box
    with 4 dual core cpus. The 'uptime' command reports a load that ranges between 10 and
    20, and when large mailings come in during prime hours, it can range from 100 to 300.
    Typically, we're running 350 simulatneous Cyrus processes, 150 Postfix processes, and
    150 Apache processes.

    So although our box works OK, the apps can probably get pretty stressed.

    Jon states in 1703921 that the issue related to the session id being treated as valid when it is named "deleted". If this is correct, then the fix committed to SVN at the end of November 2007 should fix this problem (cookie valid date set to "1"). Can you please get the newest version of SM and test again?
