I'd suggest that you check to make sure that the server is set up properly to support sessions. Run your test again, and then check the server error logs to see if there was a problem opening the sessions file. You may have to use ini_set() to point 'session.save_path' to a writable directory. phpinfo() will show you where the system currently expects to see the sessions data file.
