Losing session variables

P: n/a
I have a page containing a form. The page submits to itself and if the
data validates, stores the posted variables into a database and also
into a session. I then use header to redirect to another page which
fetches the variables from the session array and displays them.

All works fine on the Linux test server. However the production server
is Windoze running PHP 5. reg globals off I am intermittently losing
variables. from the session array

It's not a register globals issue - sometimes they are there sometimes
not. The only other difference I can see is the session.gc.divisor
which is set to 1000

Anyone come across anything like this?

Are you session-write-closing before redirect? This may help:

Thanks Tom, I've actually coded round the problem now but I needed to
know what caused it and that might explain it.
