Description Chuck P 2005-06-10 19:52:57 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
When I add a $_SESSION variable to another php $_SESSION by reference the data is lost on page refresh.  The references between $_SESSION entries are never reestablished. This is documented at as fixed in 4.3.3 bug #22245

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
php-4.3.2 / kernel-2.4.9-e.62

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Steps for reproducing bug is posted at as fixed in 4.3.3 bug #22245

Actual Results:  The references between $_SESSION entries are never reestablished.

Expected Results:  The references between $_SESSION entries SHOULD be reestablished.

Additional info:

With object orientated programing this is a common use for php programmers.  I have not run into the problem before since I have been working on newer versions.  I am now working for North Dakota State University using Redhat Enterprise Linux version 3 which runs php-4.3.2 and I realy would appreciate this update.
