Glad I could help :)

Hmmm... No idea why they're not first.  Anyways, I modified the subject so it's hopefully more relevant :)

I wanted to say that the session table will eventually cleared itself, I didn't have to truncate it. So let it be a couple of days, and probably those sessions will start to expire or something..

Ahhh...! The infamous gc_probability setting. On one of my servers (forum.cyna.net), this was set to 0 indeed. Meaning that the garbage collector had zero chance of being triggered. I remember spending something like a month with my server admin trying to figure out why the session tables wouldn't empty like they do on my other (shared hosting) server. In the end, I found out about gc_probability, and that was it.
My server admin always thought the variable was reset unknowingly by another admin. I will have to tell him this was due to a bug in Debian ;)
Thanks for the tip!
