Opera 11 - The PHP session bug

An annoying “feature” with the latest version of the Opera browser (11.01) is it’s buggy session handling.

For some reason a new session file gets placed on the server on
each page refresh. These new session files are completely blank and
does not affect your initial session. They do however produce
unnecessarily clutter on the server. Nor do these new session files
honor the PHP session_save_path directive, which I find confusing.

Whether this faulty session handling is platform specific or not is
unknown to me.
