"Storage Module" Initialization Problem

P: n/a
Okay, I am using a web host that has squirrel mail working, as well as
Drupal. However, I am trying to install my own version of squirrel mail.

Both Drupal and Squirrelmail seem to rely on the same start_session() and
both share the same php.ini. However, I get the dreaded
"Fatal error: session_start(): Failed to initialize storage module" error.

I have seen hundreds of similar errors cited when I Google, yet I see no
serious documentation to solve it. Can anybody provide me with a solution?
Why do two separate PHP web apps work and another does not?

It's entirely possible that they use a custom session data handler
that stores the session information in some other medium than the
server filesystem (which is the default behaviour)

True, but then my install of Drupal would misbehave, wouldn't it? This is
why I scratch my head and bang it against the wall--on product works fine,
but SM keeps hitting a PHP bug that is alleged to happen intermittently at
best.
