Subs-Auth question about session array, and more on login forms....

i've continued to have sessions timeout issues even with the suggested alterations to login forms, AND the mod intended to remedy it...

while filtering through the subs-auth file i found this, and no- i don't think it has anything to do with the problem above, but.... is it supposed to be this way?

I've never touched this file before... i mean, i've looked at it but never altered anything in it:
$_SESSION['mc'] = array(
'time' => time(),
// This looks a bit funny but protects against the login redirect.
'id' => $user_info['id'] && $user_info['name'] ? $user_info['id'] : 0,
// If you change the format of 'gq' and/or 'bq' make sure to adjust 'can_mod' in Load.php.
'gq' => $group_query,
'bq' => $board_query,
'ap' => boardsAllowedTo('approve_posts'),
'mb' => $boards_mod,
'mq' => $mod_query,

should not "  'ap' => boardsAllowedTo('approve_posts'),  " be "  'ap' => $boardsAllowedTo('approve_posts'), "  ?

and, again not that i think this is a part of the issue, but.... the login had to be fixed in SSI... I didn't realize that until tonight, and hope i've fixed that issue....

I'm very curious about the array above though.... can someone fill me in?

edited to add:  I went ahead and cashed that line, and immediately started seeing errors indicating it- so.... un-cashed it... error's stopped....

what does it do and where is it called?


looking through the source of SMF, it should be boardsAllowedTo and not with the $.
