FAQ
Instead of reopening a bug report, I figured I'll post it here to get
better exposure. Myself (and a few others at Zend) feel like
http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=41253 is most definitely a bug in the
engine as it relates to ext/session.

What is trying to be accomplished is the following: If a developer is
utilizing a class that calls session_start(), and something goes wrong,
I want to be able to gracefully alert the developer. This means I want
to catch any warnings (like the warning you get when you try to open an
unwritable session file), and throw them as exceptions, so far this
shouldn't be and out of the ordinary request.

Since ext/session gives no reliable way to retrieve session.save_path
when its not explicitly set, the only way to handle it is via
error_handlers.

IMO, the engine is not suppose to shutdown the way it does in the
following example.

Is the the following totally unacceptable to think that this should not
work as expected?

webdeveloper@webdevelopment ~ $ cat testerror.php
<?

ini_set('session.save_path', '/var/log');

try {
set_error_handler('save_handler', E_ALL);
session_start();
restore_error_handler();
} catch (Exception $e) {
echo $e->getMessage();
}

echo 'I NEED THIS LINE TO BE RUN REGARDLESS, WITHOUT THROWING A FATAL';

function save_handler($errno, $errmsg)
{
throw new Exception('Error caught and thrown as exception: ' .
$errmsg);
}
webdeveloper@webdevelopment ~ $ php testerror.php
Error caught and thrown as exception: session_start():
open(/var/log/sess_ed8d2518c68c574daf21c42cae51448d, O_RDWR) failed:
Permission denied (13)I NEED THIS LINE TO BE RUN REGARDLESS WITHOUT
THROWING A FATAL
