Dadgumit... I'd written this reply about the differences between the PHP session timeout and the cookie expiration...I thought I knew what PHP was doing.

But, I did some testing and even though there's a lovely GIMPSWWW cookie value being set, when I logout it's still there, and logging back in doesn't cause the server to do a set-cookie like I thought. So, it probably is using those pesky PHP session files after all. Curses.

I'll have to explore some more and see what's up. I'm spoiled at my day job...there are people who figure that sort of thing out for me (and we don't use PHP, fortunately).
