Description of problem:
The following warning appears at the bottom of every page when logged in.
This is the default PHP settings and a couple of extra squirrelmail
modules loaded (spamassassin and others)
Warning: Unknown(): Your script possibly relies on a session
side-effect which existed until PHP 4.2.3. Please be advised that the
session extension does not consider global variables as a source of
data, unless register_globals is enabled. You can disable this
functionality and this warning by setting session.bug_compat_42 or
session.bug_compat_warn to off, respectively. in Unknown on line 0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Enable certain extra modules in squirrelmail. I am unsure which one
produces this message since the warning message refers to the file:
unknown rather than an actual filename.
Actual Results: The warning message in the description appears at the
bottom of each page.
Expected Results: The warning message shouldn't appear at all.
Turning register_globals to on is not an option.
This is fixed with newer squirrelmail in RHEL3 U1 and higher.
