Description of problem:
We run a webmail system (IMP) written in PHP which uses sessions. On a
development server, I am trying to force the sessions to only use cookies, to
prevent users entering session IDS in the URL, by setting
session.use_only_cookies = 1 in php.ini. This works OK for Mozilla 1.x, Netscape
4.x and IE 5.x, (ie users are able to log in, a session is created, and there
are no issues with the session being dropped) but with Konqueror 3.1 users
cannot log in at all and the session is reported to have expired. (IMP issues
the message "Your Mail session has expired. Please login again." on the login
page, and "Session timeout for client" in its log file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure PHP to use session.use_only_cookies = 1
2. Access a PHP app which uses sessions with Konqueror

Actual Results:  User unable to log in, and an expired session message is returned.

Expected Results:  User should be able to log in.
