Description Brion Vibber 2007-03-06 02:31:17 UTC
It's fairly common for Windows-based server configurations to have broken PHP
sessions, usually due to a bad default value for session.save_path.

Testing for this in the installer should cut down on confusion and support
requests about this issue.

Added checks in r20815.
