error with sessions and headers being sent, yet nothing but headers have been sent

I'm getting this error:

Warning: session_start(): Cannot send session cache limiter - headers
already sent in
/home/httpd/vhosts/publicdomainsoftware.org/httpdocs/pdsIncludes/McSessionInfo.php
on line 34

This is line 33 to line 36 of that class:
function startSession() {
session_start();
session_register();
}

Why would this generate an error?

Don't send ANYTHING before you call session_start().
No blank lines (these are very often difficult to notice).
No debug code.
No DOCTYPE.
No error or warning messages from functions that complain.
(like access to uninitialized variables).
No HTML.

What version of PHP are you on? Typically that error message also includes the
location that first produced the output, _as well as_ the line that failed
because headers have already been sent.

Don't know if the additional information is version specific...

put an ob_start() in the 1st line, this will prevent the sending of any
ouput

ob_end_clean() just above the session call will discard the buffer and
allow your session to start clean

for debugging you could use ob_get_clean(), returns the sent output as
a string to examine
